    If I ever become so paranoid that I feel like I need to encrypt my emails please just lock me in a closet.
    After that slide a few slices of bacon under the door every other hour or so. I can live off bacon forever.
    However I would appreciate it if someone would taste the bacon first and then wait one hour before sliding it under the door to me.
    If that person dies find a new bacon supplier and start the procedure all over again. Just make sure I get bacon.

    Uh oh. I hear voices in here.
    OMG they ARE out to get me.
    Never mind. I have my bacon.

    I think you're paranoid enough.

    I'm too old and set in my ways to fiddle-faddle around with an encryption program, in an attempt to "hide" or "mask" my communications in a forum such as this or in my emails. I'm not doing anything illegal in either one and have nothing to hide.

    If the folks in the federal government "BIG BROTHER" programs will work half as hard on investigating and weeding out the despicable people who plan and carry out their evil and calculated works of mass destruction (i.e., 9-11-2001), as they seem to be doing to the good and decent people who live and work on "Main Street, USA", well...all I can say is that this nation would be a better place for us all.

    But, MPG, my point is that it is exactly because you are doing nothing wrong that you should be entitled to privacy!
    When did we get idea that privacy should only be used to hide wrongdoing?

    @Madkaw, your sentiment is shared, but posting your public key here is not the way to go about building what's called a web of trust. The best way is to have a meeting where you share keys with a group of people. Even though I don't necessarily agree with his political views, cyber-activist and science fiction writer Cory Doctorow describes making a web of trust by building a private key share in his novella "Little Brother." The whole novella is available for free download under a Creative Commons license. Although the author leans too far to port for my political tastes, the novel is actually very timely and describes a group of teens fighting back against the surveillance state. The setting up of a "Web of Trust" key exchange is only one scene in the novella, but it's worthwhile to read. Something everyone here ought to think about.

    You are correct about the ideal state of setting up a web of trust face to face. But trust is not a binary state. You must evaluate the level of trust conveyed by my posting and use it appropriately. The purpose that I am trying to promote is validly served by this posting. If it becomes necessary to establish a greater level of trust between individuals, that can be addressed at a later time. I am not asking anyone to sign my key.
