When verifying your signature and *without* importing the keyblock you
attached to your message:

gpg: Signature made Sun Mar 20 08:58:08 2011 EDT using RSA key ID 4B22824D
gpg: requesting key 4B22824D from hkp server
gpg: key 4B22824D: public key "Jonathan Ely <thajsta at>" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1  (RSA: 1)
gpg: BAD signature from "Jonathan Ely <thajsta at>"

That server ( is working, as well as e.g.,, just to mention those.

The raw source of your e-mail displays:
From: Jonathan Ely <thajsta at>
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB;	rv:
Gecko/20110303 Thunderbird/3.1.9
Something *might* be wrong in the settings of your OpenPGP keyserver

Your signature does not verify. I doesn't verify either in your previous
post with subject "Re: what are subkeys"

In both e-mails the raw source displays:
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
and the string: --=20  between the actual text and the blurb

"quote-printable" might be the reason why the signature does not verify.
