Two issues about your signature --

First of all, the separator should be "-- " (dash-dash-space without the
quote marks) per RFC 3676 (Section 4.3).  You have only "--"
(dash-dash); the required space at the end is missing.  If the separator
included the space, removal of your signature for replies would be
automatic with most (all?) modern newsreaders.

Second, your caveat about confidential information is not enforceable,
whether in a one-recipient E-mail message or in a broadcast newsgroup
message.  Actually, in the latter case (e.g., this newsgroup), your
caveat is at best strange since your message is visible to anyone with
an Internet connection.
