I use www.keyserver.org - hadn't heard of the ones you mentioned (not
saying much, though).

See my sig.  But you've already picked up on that.

How does it stop spam?  You need *everybody* (including technophobes
you know (like grandparents)) to sign all their messages.  Once
signing reaches that sort of critical mass, the spammers will take
note and start signing their messages.

*Anybody* can generate a public key...
