I'm jumping in here, guys n gals.  If you're using a character oriented
MUA like mutt, you have to verify traditional PGP (ESC-P in mutt),
after that the .signature separator is perfectly legal. It's not Karl's
fault: traditional PGP mangles it.  When verified, the PGP cruft won't
appear in your editor when following up.

Siggy

p.s.: I sent Karl some screen shots explaining what we see and why we
      are complaining.
