Bumping this very old topic to update with later info.
Sammie (hi Sammie!!) is talking about the Web-based GUI client you can use from the TriadCity Web site. When you use the Android client, the iOS client, or your favorite MUD client, signs don't pop up. Instead they're automatically translated for you to appear as text in your game window - the same place where all other descriptions appear.
I wanted to point this out since I believe most of us these days are using mobile clients or a MUD client.
