Apollogies! Here's an example:
I clearsign a text file and verify it and modern GnuPG shows me this:
gpg --verify my_message.txt
gpg: Signature made Do 15 Jun 18:31:05 2017 CEST
gpg: using RSA key 2BAF85F9281ABD543823C7C5981EB7C382EC52B4
gpg: Good signature from "Stefan Claas <stefan.claas at posteo.de>" [ultimate]
A friend just recently posted a message in a Usenet Group and i get this:
gpg --verify m123.eml
gpg: Signature made Xx 00 Jun 00:00:00 2017 CEST
gpg: using RSA key 0000000000000000
gpg: Good signature from "xxxxxx xxxxxxxxx <xxxxxxx at example.com>" [full]
gpg: xxxxxx at example.com: Verified 4 signatures in the past 7 days.
Encrypted 0 messages.
I will now also sign my message and hope i don't mess this post up,
so that you can verify my sig and tell me if it shows you also the
long-key ID or full key on your system.
