I agree with Jlong here. I don't think us discussing (& posting) on this site really has any baring or influence on the counterfeit market.
First and foremost this forum is for discussion. Talk of archives and databasing, whilst interesting and in many respects appealing, is one step (in my opinion) towards shattering the whole appeal and pleasure in collecting for the amateur/private collector. By quantifying everything (or aiming to), we risk loosing (sanitising) everything that makes (for me) book collecting (I include in this the collecting of information of any kind about books) what it is.
If I have any issues or questions about signatures, I'll continue to raise them here on the forum, or simply communicate them privately with Beren...
