"Your Honor, I object.  Assuming facts almost comically not in  
evidence."   The original poster says nothing about using this list as  
a "first source of information" (your words), or even any words to  
that effect.  In fact, allow me to repost the entire post:

 > Can OpenPGP digital signature be used to comply to FDA's 21 CFR  
Part 11 , or does it mandatorily require X.509 or PKI based signatures

That's it.  One line.  You seem to be concluding from this that he has  
somehow done something wrong by merely asking the question, but I see  
no actual facts to base that on: merely a guess as to the situation  
underlying the question, and then scolding the questioner based on  
your guess.  Maybe it would be better let the questioner be  
responsible for the questioner?

I'm happy to continue this discussion offline if you like, but as this  
no longer has any bearing on GPG or OpenPGP, it seems inappropriate  
for this list.
