| Please forgive me if this is an ignorant question. I
| just got my first set of keys and I'm wondering why my
| public key is so long. I see many users with really
| short public keys. Can someone help me understand why
| some public keys are short and others are long?
|

Noone else attaches their public key top the message they
sign the message. This results in a amount of data much
smaller than the public key look at Tom McCune's PGP FAQ

|
| Is there a way I can reduce the size of my public key?
|
| Does my public key seem longer than normal?
