the only emails I get are from either friends who have nothing to say or from 
mailing lists.

my friends, genreally don't know enough about computer to use sigs/encryption.

mailing lists are not the place to transmit information sensitive enough to 
need sign/encrypt.

I couldn't be bothered setting up extra software just to pander to someone 
elses ego.

another pet hate of mine is people who use massive signatures and / or 
copyright / my view not my boss' disclaimers at the foot of every mail they 

I've seen 30 line signatures / disclaimers quoted five or six times on mails 
that are a one line reply to a one line statement many times on this list
