At the risk of sounding offtopic and political, as participants in IT and
the open source community at large, aren't we supposed to hold ourselves to
the "higher standard" and promote the use of encrypted email? If we're 
refusing to read signed messages because we have client-side problems with 
signatures (and are too lazy to fix them), how do we expect (or wish for) 
the rest of the world to do so?
