I don't doubt that. I just don't understand why someone who has understood the 
concept and is capable of validating keys of others, encrypting, decrypting 
and signing should not use that technology for his email (neither professional 
nor private). The people I know who are interested in security technology are 
generally interested in spreading this technology (not limited to OpenPGP).

Thus I assume that you are an exception, whatever your reasons may be.
