My rant isn't aimed at convincing people to *sign* their messages, it's
to convince them to get a mailer that *supports* RFC 2015 signed
You're probably reading this because you either stumbled across
it at my website, or I sent it to you in response to an email
you sent me saying *you can't read my mail*. In the latter case,
the short answer is that:
- Your mailer is broken.
- This is your problem, not mine.
- File a bug report with your vendor.
- *I'm going to continue signing my mail, and if you don't change
your end of things, you're going to continue having problems

If you'd indicate that you'd read and understood the essay, I might not
feel inclined to include relevant portions highlighting your inaccurate
statements of its contents. It's called reading *with* comprehension.
