To be honest, the way you approached it, I'd be insulted too. 
Accusing someone of something, i.e. 'he is misappropriating the name 
""', only has them put up their defenses. You can only
request that GPG be added and the request will either by accepted 
or declined.

Personally, I don't think it matters. I use GPG along side PGP and 
have never been to I think that most people who 
would have an interest in GPG have many other ways to find out 
about it. It's a non-issue in my book. I'd put it on the "It would be 
nice to see this" list.

Version: GnuPG v1.2.1 (MingW32) - GPGshell v2.65
