...or change back to it? The times in the certificates are rather peculiar.



If someone isn't vigilant about these things then the CA system provides no security. The bitcointalk forum would be a useful thing to try to MITM.

Not to nitpick, theymos, but your PGP-signed message isn't specific enough. If this forum were compromised, that message could have been taken from you years ago.

PGP messages contain a timestamp.
