"A user"? LOL

The developers did. This is the default setting (hidden in the experts 
settings and "hidden" by not showing the key validity by default; OK, by 
default they don't show any keys at all so why bother...). IMHO an 
absolutely crazy decision. The worst possible organizational failure. 
And the MacOS GPGTools don't show you the fingerprint when certifying a 
key. That's where mainstream crypto software is going currently. Welcome 
to the world of easy crypto...
