Concur.  I distrust them to the extent that I never see them.  Hence,
the vote for inline.

I was wondering what people's feelings are here as to the best way to
digitally sign a message.
mutt for example creates the digital signature as an attachment, and then
attaches it, while some people create the
signature as part of the text of the message.

Which way is best? or most compatable?

I personally distrust any attachments I didn't specifically request, so my
vote would be for inline signatures.
