EtymologyEdit

sig +‎ block

NounEdit

sigblock (plural sigblocks)

  1. (Internet) A block of text used as a sig (e-mail or newsgroup signature).
    • 1996, "R R Neuswanger", signature at the bottom of reply/forward (on newsgroup comp.mail.pine)
      Now cut the sigblock with control-circumflex and control-k.
    • 2001, David Harley, Robert Slade, Urs E. Gattiker, Viruses revealed
      In fact, a good idea might be to have email sigblocks carry this warning, to avoid later hassles over privacy.
