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.
