How do you know which keys you don't need? Do you simply eyeball the
userids and delete the ones you don't recognize, or is there a more
efficient way? I currently have over 300 public keys on my keyring (I
also have the auto-retrieve option set), and I'm very sure I don't need
most of those, but how can I tell which ones I actually need?
I look for what needs to be done.... After all, that's how the
universe designs itself.
