Re: NPR : E-Mail Encryption Rare in Everyday Use

Phil Z doesn´t know how to do it himself, at least with PGP.
He told me that he doesn´t sign people´s keys who ask for it,
simply because it would pollute his keyring on his computer,
and he couldn´t work with a keyring with thousands of people
on it anymore.

So PGP obviously has a usability and scalability problem.
So he only signs the keys of his friends because of that.
I wonder now, why he didn´t tried to solve that
usability/scalability problem himself yet, but gave up instead.

Best regards,
Philipp Gühring
