jargon The act of excoriating a bloated, ugly or derivative
sig block. Common grounds for warlording include the
presence of a signature rendered in a BUAF, over-used or
cliched sig quotes, ugly ASCII art, or simply excessive
size. The original "Warlord" was a BIFF-like newbie
c. 1991 who featured in his sig a particularly large and
obnoxious ASCII graphic resembling the sword of Conan the
Barbarian in the 1981 John Milius movie; the group name was sarcasm, and the characteristic mode of
warlording is devastatingly sarcastic praise.
