    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I know. It struck me as odd, especially as I didn't mention price. Its not like he's being low-balled and ignoring it...
