CCPC, depends on the forum. Some of them block spiders from seeing the signatures, and others use jump scripts or "nofollow" to prevent the signature links from passing link popularity.

One should comment on forums because one has something worthwhile to contribute, not as a link-building technique.

unfortunately no,because many forums don't allow advertising. I am member of some forums, but only few have as signature link to my site.

I get traffic from forum signatures but far more from blog comment signatures. I find that a forum post that differs from the majority really brings them in, not a flame but an intelligent rebuttal. Keep posting in related niche forums and blogs.
I removed links from my sig on this forum - no traffic was coming from here - nor was I expecting it. This forum is where I get support not traffic.

I think another issue is that on any page that allows sig links, you'll be sharing the juice with lots of other people.

Last summer, I tried to actively participate in several forums, posted hundreds of messages in total, and could discern no noticeable effect...

I have gotten some traffic from my signature but I also have a myspace so I think I am getting some traffic from that too.

Sure doesn't seem to decrease traffic. Not sure if it drives qualified traffic, but traffic is better than no traffic.

It can definitely be helpful, but I wouldn't want to have my business depend on it!
