Ha. Good one.

But really, should we all be using some form of it?
I did for a while. I notice some folks here use it, some don't.
KMail always says unknown (I think we have to share keys).
Would it be better for LAD? Does it matter? 
Will it, soon, the way things are going?

Big brother is the corporations. 
I used to be able to claim a prize in a bag of potato chips by walking in 
 to any store and handing over a ticket. Now I must 'register' on-line.

This technology we use is a delicate dance between convenience and security, 
 but I don't like what I'm seeing transpire these days...

Here, our gov created a national "do not call" list, which we could join 
 and telemarketers would not be allowed to call us, if we said so.
People flocked to the list!
Then the gov sold the list to some marketing group. Ugh...
