I'm going to ask that the lists begin discussing in a different
thread, revised guidelines for use of GPG. If for no other reason than
that things that taking donations of different (now hundreds) of
cryptocurrencies, and that breathing or farting or feeding your pigs
is now illegal, I think that we need to at least make some kind of
halfhearted attempt to discuss when and in what circumstances GPG (ok,
if you like I am tired, and you can say PGP too) key exchange is best
for whole list and not just for betweent two persons.

Dasvedanya, etc.
