When searching for this question, all I could find is how to disable the option.

Insert this signature before quoted text in replies and remove the "--" line that precedes it.

But this would not remove the signature and they still pile up at the end of the email. Is there a way to disable the signatures in replies, or even better, to prevent the signature from being added if the same signature exists already somewhere in the (quoted) text of the email?

    Only in replies. I like to have my signature once in an email thread, but not more than that.

Unfortunately, the only way is to hide them with --.

The workaround would be to disable signatures completely and use canned responses, but the downside would be always inserting canned response, e.g. it would be signature on demand.
