Something seems amiss at the website:

"Add my signature to this post" is checked independently from my Community preference setting. I did log off from the site and back on, and tested both settings.

Furthermore, in this thread the sequence of the messages is messed up.

I see all posts in that thread in sequentially rising numbers.

Yes, of course; that's why I said that the sequence is scrambled.

Yes and no ;-)

Yes, it was set so, but no, I didn't set it that way. I'm pretty sure that I set it to "oldest first" back when.

Thanks for the hint.

And "Add my signature to this reply" is still set, though "Attach signature by default" is definitely not set (I just checked again).

The last one would be worth reporting to the developers.

It may also be worth noting that when previewing a message, the “Add my signature” checkbox gets reset.

I found that if I search for something on Google using
[..... site:setiathome.berkeley.edu]

(to search only on SETI@home site) and then click on the found links
my preferences are changed to the way (post order) the found page is displayed.
