I think unsubscribing is the best thing you can do. Because you probably
successfully destroyed the good intension and motivation of anyone
helping you, with the offending nonsense you wrote in your last mails.

If you are angry just shut up and write again after you cooled yourself
down. The problem is more likely with you because there are not many
people reporting such problems.
And I can tell from my own experience that it is not even a problem
copying the content of the gnupg directory between windows and linux.
Tried that successfully.
Maybe you should read the FAQ again (and try to understand what is
written). Maybe there is a difference between exporting the public part
of a key and the private part.

Anyway, enjoy your life.
