No, Patrik. "Just throwing them away" means going 
into my Attachments folder, finding them, and 
"just throwing them away". This is a waste of my 
time. I am not paranoid about whether your 
messages have been intercepted and altered. I 
don't use the PGP files you send out. They are 
useless clutter and an annoyance.

Not everybody is an IETF geek and not everybody 
wants this kind of junk to be received in every 
mail sent out.

Please be polite, and stop sending out these unwanted attachments.
