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

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.
