I reply only because I am mentioned by name.

I asked politely and gave a reason for my request. He replied with
name-calling and insults. I don't sign post to mailing lists. My keys, I
have several for different reasons and email address, are posted. I also
have a very private key which I have only given to certain people. I
would never use that for anyone but them.

I hope he offers you many and useful tips and pointers in the future.

I no longer care what he does.
