I wasn't making any claim as to the general validity of IDs which are
purchased and I'm rather annoyed that you attempted to extrapolate it
out to such.  What I said is that he wasn't trying to fake who he was,
as the information (according to his blog anyway, which he might be
lieing on but I tend to doubt it) on the ID was, in fact, accurate.

If you're upset about this because you had planned to sign it and now
feel 'duped' then I suggest you get past that emotional hurdle and come
back to reality.  No one 'crack'ed anything here (that we know of
anyway) and while not signing his key because of this is reasonable, or
even revoking a signature which had been based on this ID, the constant
inflammatory claims of Martin being a 'cracker' and how this could lead
to other 'cracks' is extreme, insulting, and childish.
