Have a look at what's said about the signatures when you query gpg
directly, or via one of the key managers.  It'll probably be more
revealing than the messages passed along by a mail client.

I'm lucky the spam is low, but it still pisses me off.  We get a lot of
junk in the postbox, too.  And, if you get the newspaper, you get the
same thing inserted inside it.  It filled a rather large box up one
Christmas, I was sorely tempted to take the box to one of the department
stores responsible for most of it, and dump it on them.  These days I
stuff torn up junk mail in those reply paid envelopes, and send junk
mail to another junk mailer.

The phone spam is the worst.  It interrupts what you're doing, and now
they're getting rude at people who don't go along with them.  I got
really mad at one of them, swore quite profusely at them for wasting my
time, lying to me, and threatened them with more foul language if they
ever rang back.  Then looked up to see my mother and sister looking
quite shocked at me.  I'd forgotten I wasn't alone in the room.  ;-)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
