I think this is silly. If your mailer deals with PGP attachments improperly,
change your mailer to something else. Personally I think signing messages is
a very good step towards more secure communication channels. Any "netiquette"
that frowns upon this most probably originated in a time when the internet
was a much safer place.

And yeah, I hate vcards too. But my MUA doesn't dump them on my desktop and
annoy me. Work around other's tastes, don't try and change them.
