A key signing party, while a great thing and useful in general,  doesn’t really help with what Dewole is getting at.

What Dewole is saying is that if you have a From: line which reads like this:

		From: Anonymous Anteater <anteater at random-public-mailer.com>

Then it would be good if you sent an email like this to the list:

		From: Anonymous Anteater <anteater at random-public-mailer.com>
		To: rpd at afrinic.net
		Subject: Introduction

		Hi, while my email identifies me as an Anonymous Anteater, in real life, my name is John Smith and I work
		for XYZ Telecom as a Senior Network Plumber.

		Nice to meet everyone,


Hope that clarifies the situation.
