Someone should make a post, and have it sticky.

1. How to verify GPG signatures.
2. How to sign and verify bitcoin signatures.
3. How to get a public key from a keyserver or a webpage.
4. How public keys and private keys work in GPG or PGP.

Until you can do all that, there is no point to attempting doing any transaction.

It's really simple: If you can verify the signature, you are sure the message was really from whoever sent it, or whoever has access to the private key. Most people who have GPG installed are careful about their computer systems so they don't get compromised easily.

Anyone who doesn't get along with GPG should try gpg4usb.
It's portable, works on windows and linux and it has a GUI very easy to understand.

Thank you for once you post something helpful on my threads.  No more sending anyone coins ever again learned my lesson.  GPG is another step to being secure its very important to learn.

Would using bitmessages rather than PGP-signed emails be more user-friendly?

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

Yes I think it is because the user only has to give you 36 character address which acts as there address that you send messages to and public crypto key for encrypting and sending them messages.

Where as PGP you have to know there email address and a separate public key that is 100+ characters
