So am I but for different reasons.
I don't have my reader set to verify PGP signed stuff. But so
many people who use PGP think they need 4Kbit keys, I get
tired of reading essentially useless junk at the end of the
messages. Back in the good old days when Telecom engineers
had jobs and I was employed, one guy started using 4Kbit keys
with PGP on company e-mail. I finally asked him just not ever
to send me e-mail again, but call me on the 'phone.

This message made from 100% recycled bits.
You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
