There's a strong possibility that your MUA is misinterpreting their
multipart/signed messages. For example, my User-Agent displays messages
from Valdis just fine.

So, why do these folks post attachments?

They don't. Maybe your User-Agent is wrong when it takes the text/plain
in the multipart/signed message and shows it as an attachment. AIUI,
rfc1847 says that even if your MUA can't work with the signature, in can
continue processing the other body part.

You might want to try one of the freely available MUAs like Thunderbird.
