Virtually nobody uses the WoT.  What people use are direct key
signatures.  That is you verify a key's owner and then sign that key.
Usually not even exportable.  Verification is often done by trust on
first use.  And that is okay for the majority of use cases.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
