I don't think Lars really wrote it.  The signature can't be checked.  PGP
does not even say it's a bad sig, it just says that there is a "Bad ASCII
armor character, line 1".  Look at the headers, it doesn't look like
it came from anywhere near Finland.  However, I don't know how it got
through Lars, who is the moderator, but I know it's possible to bypass the
moderator somehow.

This is not the sig Lars used to have before he left the project.

and how about this?  This definitely says that Lars could not have posted
it.  That's a pretty nasty joke someone played on Lars.
