There are issues of tradecraft, then.  Using OpenPGP as a tool for
committing crimes is kind of stupid.  There are more secure methods
for a closed community to secure its lines of communication.  If one
chooses the wrong tool for a job, or chooses to use it incorrectly, no
blame attaches to others for the consequences of one's choice.

I feel there is a strong assumption among OpenPGP users that our
community is, *ahem*, open.
