Artist signature as watermark - acceptable?

On a related subject, what of very un-intrusive third-party watermarks? I'm looking at a few posts from here:
and the comics have the translators name in the lower right corner of the images.

On an otherwise high-quality image, I think something like that is fine.

That said, the editing job on the image you posted makes me want to dropkick babies. Tilted scans with gutter shadow; JPEG artifacts everywhere; white boxes from the paint can tool; poorly placed, poorly sized, and heavily aliased text; and that's just for starters -- the only way this editing job could be worse is if it used Comic Sans as its font. Do not upload it or anything like it to Danbooru.
