I agree with your correction - hope you will agree with mine:
Yes, malware/keyloggers/etc. are bigger problem than the tone of
my previous post implies. But physical protection of the box is alaso
a *sigificant* problem for many users. And use of "other people's
computers" can often mitigate this problem; as, I believe, the
original poster aluded.
I will terminate my contribution to this thread with the following
It is valid to advise the user to use GPG only on a trusted computer.
It is however not valid to assume there will be only one computer
he or she can trust.
