Evolution adds 'Sent from Ubuntu' signature by default

Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"The Evolution package in Ubuntu 10.10 was patched to apply a signature of "Sent from Ubuntu" for new users (as implemented in bug #615300). This bug report is the mirror to that report and requests removal/reversion.

"Rationale: Evolution definitely shouldn't add this signature by default. A large number of users are against having such an unprofessional looking, rude, obnoxious and useless signature enabled by default. Evolution should let the user choose whether they wish to boast about their Operating System. The signature should be added only if the user approves the addition, since a lot of people have many different reasons not to include this signature.

"The upload that added the "Sent from Ubuntu" signature occurred at T-minus six weeks before release."
