Well, before we get a full debate going, I still see it as not doing anyone any good. If you want to encourage the use of PGP (which you should), then do something like I do and put your key ID in your sig. People will see the funny numbers and letters and, after a while, get curious and check that PGP thing out. Same effect as signing everything, just without all the extra, useless bytes. -- Gordon Worley `When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, `it means just what I choose it to mean--neither more nor less.'
