Because many boards use BBCode instead. Try doing something like

[ url=http://some.address.com ]My site[ /url ]

(without the spaces in the square brackets).

Full-blown html in sigs can be abused in lots of interesting ways and is therefore often prohibited.

And to whom it may concern:
Sigs are great and can be quite helpful to complement the impression you get from someone by the posts he writes.
Promoting shady business-models is probably not something to earn credibility points with...
