That's exactly the point. Most people to whom I send signed messages are
Windows/Office users. To them PGP is just clutter and it must appear as if
I try to educate them, which is bad.
E-mail messages are highly exposed. However, you must ask yourself: will
anyone have an /interest/ in them? What is there to lose? A hijacked Web
site? A profitable patent?
