I'm told that key servers carry many phony keys claiming to be mine. Here is info about which keys are really mine.

Of course, to be really sure which key is mine, you need to get my key fingerprint from me or follow a chain of signatures. If a phony key appears to be signed by someone you trust, you should see what's up with that person.
If you want an encrypted response, you must send me your key, because I don't use key servers. I don't promise to keep it permanently if we don't talk often, so if you talk with me again a year later you should send it again.
