This is because in the absence of trust, signatures are meaningless.
Who on this list has verified my certificate to any real degree?  Samir
Nassar, Patrick Brunschwig, maybe one or two others.  Who on this list
would invest my messages with a degree of trust they shouldn't?  Many
many more.

For that reason, I show some caution with what messages I sign.  I
suspect many others are likewise.
