crypto code of conduct ("Crypto-Knigge")

I would like to abuse this list for something IMHO important though 
slightly off-topic...

I think we (and "we" is "the Internet users" not just "those who write 
on gnupg-users"...) are missing a culture of secured communication 
(which can mean encrypted, signed or anonymous or a combination of that) 
and that an accpeted (by "those who write on gnupg-users" ;-) ) code of 
conduct (my German term: "Crypto-Knigge") would be quite useful to get 
there (or at least nearer).

I am not talking about technical recommendations but about 
"organizational" (behaviour / attitude) recommendations. It's not the 
reason for the selection but I assume that it's easier to get a 
concensus in that area... :-)

I have written a draft for that. And now it's getting even more off-
topic: It's in German; thus this mainly addresses the Gerrman speaking 
(i.e. understanding) people on this list who might be interested in 

The idea is not OpenPGP- / GnuPG-specific but for obvious reasons my 
view is...

But if there is enough interest from people who don't understand German 
then I would try to make a good translation.

I wrote it in German because (a) most of my crypto-related articles are 
an German and (b) something big (compared to former crypto stuff 
affecting the general public) is going to happen in Germany later this 
year which could help a lot to make this more common.
