It's been years -- 25 years or more -- since I've read Victor Milan's
"The Cybernetic Samurai."  I only remember one scene from the novel, but
it's a scene of such vividness that it's been permanently burned into my

The short version of it is, someone who is scared, in fear for her life,
and really needs a friend, asks a mercenary if she can trust him.

"I'm not going to answer that," he tells her.  "Deciding who to trust
and why is on you, not me.  A word of advice, sister... when you meet a
guy who says you can trust him?  Don't.  It never ends well."

Why should you trust GPG4WIN?  Beats me.  That's on you.  All that we
can do is answer questions.  If you have specific questions that can be
factually answered, I'd love to help you with them.  But I'm not going
to tell you that you should trust GPG4WIN, and I don't think you should
believe anyone who tells you otherwise.
