... Er, this is Nan's Signature for everything. Maybe he shoud ad the

But sorry, I disagree a little bit. If we want literally to jam the
secret service's attempts to decrypt mails, then it makes sense to use
encryption for every single mail, private, business, nonsense and
Technical reasons, NOT to encrypt on a list server are another disussion.
