So this quote is from a post that so far seems to be a scam, and I only note that so people don't think I'm linking to it because I'm in on it or something...

This is the first instance I've seen of PGP/GPG being used in regards to bitcoin, so I figured I'd take the opportunity to ask for a bit of help (perhaps a refresher is all I need, or perhaps someone knows of some issue I'm unaware of). I haven't used PGP/GPG mu in quite a while. I just downloaded the latest version (for Windows) with Kleopatra and imported my keyrings, but when I try to verify this I'm told it can't be verified. I thought when I used it before it would import keys from signatures, but maybe I'm remembering wrong. Regardless, I can sign a block of text with one of my keys and it fails to verify too. I was going to create a separate key for bitcoin, but I didn't realize that they have to have e-mail addresses and can't have other types of IDs, but in doing that, I noticed that I can't generate 4096-bit RSA certificates. That's what some of mine are, and I thought that might be why it can't verify them, but I'm pretty sure WinPT would way back when. Anyway, another issue I had on Windows once upon a time was that several different tools didn't seem to properly verify files (maybe only large ones, I don't remember), and I never really figured out whether the problem was the tools (md5sum, sha1sum, etc) or Windows itself. Also, for the record, I have NOT chosen to refresh OpenPGP certificates (I have never submitted my certs online or downloaded certs online, primarily because last time I messed with this stuff there was no open server or it wasn't so simple). That aid, anyone here have any thoughts regarding this whole scenario?
