I think a bit of opportunistic encryption without proper identity verification
can be a very good thing. I was just pointing out that you need to know the
limits of that way of working, and make a conscious decision whether you need
proper verification or not.

But I didn't indicate that clearly enough.



PS: By the way, my ISP and some of it's employees are in a perfect position to
do a man in the middle. I sure hope they can't "just hack my system" because of
that position. The one capability certainly does not imply the other.

I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
