Well, it's rather a precautionary measure than an actual security measure, ,
reminding me of not trusting the key owner's ability to handle and verify
signatures correctly, if he/she uses a signature no one has the chance to check
because the information about the public key's location isn't indicated by its
owner in his/her very message. I assigned the "I do not trust him" attribute to
the first key he used in a previous message.

Or was your comment directed to the owner of the key? Now, I am not quite sure
about that...

Anyway, nice weekend to all
