On the other hand, ‘diversity of user signatures’ makes our wikis less welcoming to people with colour blindness and disabilities that require using a screen reader to edit (since, I imagine, they have to go through a lot of useless code to know, say, who to ping in a discussion). You have to wonder what kind of diversity we should value.

Imagine that a postal service started demanding we sign our letters in a particular way. Don't be so restrictive. It is unnecessary and condescending to volunteers

No imagination needed: Emails sent via Wikipedia are text-only
