It depends.

My key is publically available, with my current email address in it. 
Thus, anybody knows that I'm using gpg from time to time, at least
those who are interested to. But that doesn't mean that I'm encrypting
information which could be of importance for a three letter agency. In
fact, I'm much more concerned about all the people sitting
"in-between" (e.g. provider employees etc.) who could use content of my
emails to spam on me or to sell it to advertisers and the like.

After all, I have a private life..
