What should I explain? That signing usually is unwanted? It's usually
unwanted, because there is absolutely no reason to sign mails to a
mailing list, especially when most messages are signed with untrusted
keys. I experience this on many mailing lists, not at Debian user.

Signing a mail to a mailing list IMO is similar to draw up a contract,
when you lend a friend 10,-€. There simply shouldn't be the need to sign
those messages, just because there is one Super-Troll. AFAIK this never
happened before and there's no reason to assume it will happen often in
the future. This Super-Troll is an exception.
