What does SIG stand for in messages?

Silence is golden

Those who want you to SU use SIG to stand for "silence is golden." This acronym is an invitation to stop talking, before you say something you'll regret.

Originally, "silence is golden" was used as part of the proverb "speech is silver, silence is golden." This phrase implies that while talking is good and all, listening is often better. (At the very least, listening is less likely to get you in trouble for running your mouth.)


And then there's the health code violations!
Listen, buddy, I know you want to spout off. But sometimes SIG, ok?
