Questions about signatures

What does it mean when a person crosses out their signature?

Now and then I come across someone who has crossed a line through their signature. Sometimes the entire signature has a line or several lines through it,
Sometimes just the first name or the last name is crossed through.  What does this say about the writer?

  • A line or even several lines crossing out the signature alerts me to the fact that the person is dealing with a desire to remake them self.
  • Sometimes a line is crossed just through the first name which means the desire is in regard to remaking their personal self.
