I have been reading about the automated signing of people's key via a
robot. I have mixed feelings about it. First off, I like the idea, that I
can get it signed by "someone" else (although it is not really a person)
without any real effort. But I do have issues with it. The robot is
signing people's keys without knowing anything about them, except having
their email address. This kinda defeats the purpose of people signing
other people's keys so there is a web of trust.
For me the jury is still out on whether I like this or not.
I will do more research on this before I make my final judgment.
