Would you follow a signpost saying "THIS WAY--" I wouldn't, I'd like
to know what's there first. Perhaps you could be a bit more
informative.

I saw a signpost last weekend.

THIS WAY
THAT WAY
SOMEWHERE ELSE

IIRC, SOMEWHERE ELSE led to the pub.

In Parc Asterix in Paris, there's a signpost at a crossroads with all the
directions saying Rome.

It's a fundamental of web design. A link should contain as much information
as possible.

One of my favourite postcards is of a signpost pointing both left and
right with Chinese-type words on each end but "This Way" right in the
middle. A former colleague came up with a plausible interpretation,
that the Chinese was for "Ladies" and "Gents" and the ambiguity in the
English was to embarass foreign tourists...

Road signs in the North West (of Scotland) traditionally only said
things like "North", "East" and so on, which was all that was
needed. However, in recent decades their replacements have had the
names of places as well, which spoils the atmosphere a bit.

It's six pages of data all of which have been discussed here in detail
in the past. I really didn't see the point.

On the other hand I missed "on helmet compulsion" form the subject, so
apologies for that at least. I was in a hurry.
