This is exactly what David said in his initial e-mail, yet your replies
in this thread come off as though you are arguing with or dismissing his

For the record, i also got spammed with a similar message to the one
David quoted; i don't remember which keyserver was indicated as the
source, though.

And i should probably add that it is indeed an infinitesimal drop in the
bucket compared to the other spam i receive; i'm not concerned about it.
