I could not disagree more. First of all I feel that is important to sign all mails in order to establish a consitent M.O. of always using signatures. This has already been discussed here so I will not go into that more. However to the mailing list point directly I offer you the latest news from vuln-dev. A post was put on vuln-dev supposedly from=20 Carolyn Meinel that was suuposed to be a root exploit or wuftpd. In actuality all it did was delete files off the users hard drive. A pgp signature or more accurately a lack there of would have prevented people from assuming the code was from carol and running it. Is it really such a bother to you to have a couple of extra lines of text? --=20 +------------------+---------------------------------------------------+
