warlording: [from the USENET group] v. 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.
