My email client, Thunderbird, goes out and searches for his 'not made
public as it should be' public Key each and every post. Which takes,
depends on the various Keyservers, 20 +- seconds *each* Kerserver for
*each* post. Two in one thread? Does it twice. Three? Does it three
times. Etc...

I would think that the other email clients using GnuPG do the same. I
can set it *not* to do that here but that is not what I wish. And why
should I set my system so that one person can do things incorrectly?

But no longer. I asked him politely. But his attitude bought him the bit
bucket here.

Understand now?
