There are recommendations you can discuss for quite a while but there
are also (and that's probably the majority of cases you mean) statements
which are stupid or plain wrong.
"Before you can use a key you have to make it valid. In order to get
this done just set the owner trust to ultimate"...
And incomplete information:
"After creating the key create a revocation certificate, too." I still
have to be told why it shall be possible to have a safe backup of the
revocation certificate but impossible (or less possible) to have a safe
backup of the secret mainkey...
When I encounter such statements (more or less limited to German pages)
then I contact the author or leave a comment on that page. As they all
make the same mistakes I meanwhile have a list of text blocks which I
can use with copy&paste...
I even offer to check articles before or after publication:
I recommend that all qualified people do the same when encountering bad
articles. It seems important to me to increase the quality of
information out there.
