Building a web of trust is so hopeless, from my point of view, that I 
have abandonned gnupg. I have made keys for myself, obtained enigmail 
for my Firefox browser, etc. But those with whom I correspond by e-mail 
has diminished to almost the vanishing point. They use text messages on 
their cell phones, Facebook messages, etc. While a few worry about the 
"CIA" snooping on them, none will consider gnupg and enigmail. So for 
me, it is pointless.
