If you mean do I sign my posts? No.

But it doesn't really matter - his headers are easily discernable from mine. It is a human issue - people see my name and my sig and think it is me at face value. If I had a signature block he'd just copy that too. Sure, it wouldn't verify - but it'd *look* like my post. Anyone who glances at his headers could tell it isn't me, but most users aren't saavy enough to do that - let alone GPG verify posts.
