Then if anyone *cough* *cough* on your leg and tells you its raining
you'll already have one over them. :)

I suppose you mean encrypting, you can still read signed mail. The point
to note is that *if suddenly* two people start encrypting their mail,
that alone will set off alarm bells and basic detective/"social
engineering" work would reveal more than you would like. If you encrypt
your mail all the time (not sure who does) then the chances of anyone
wasting resources to "see what's up" is considerably lower.
