    GnuPG normally checks that the timestamps associated with keys and
    signatures have plausible values. However, sometimes a signature
    seems to be older than the key due to clock problems. This option
    makes these checks just a warning.  See also --ignore-valid-from for
    timestamp issues on subkeys.

Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
