Perhaps the novice interface should just stick to "validity" and do away with
the whole concept of ownertrust to keep things simple. Suggest that people meet
up with someone and sign their key personally if they want validity.

Also, I think the word "trust" by itself should probably be avoided everywhere.
The word "ownertrust" is uncommon enough that people might be more inclined to
look up what it means, instead of thinking they already know what "trust" means.

My 2 cents,


I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
