Well, this is debatable, but at least it shows GnuPG users, which rely on
IMHO outdated Internet PGP tutorials that there are other forms of GnuPG
communications available, besides classical email usage and it strengthens
the usage of GnuPG, compared to those smartphone crypto Messengers, or S/MIME
email usage etc.

People using GnuPG should appreciated these tips, even if they don't use them.
