Just thought I'd make you aware of this horrendous website, which is charging
people for pre-generated GnuPG key pairs with "vanity" key ids:

I read about it earlier today on the following thread, where the author of the
website has been talking about it:

Apparently some of the funds will be donated to the GnuPG project. I suspect
he hasn't been in contact, and I imagine the funds would not be welcome?
