There's a lot to be said for signing messages to lists like this.  It
makes impersonation way more difficult.  It provides a visual reminder
that "signing exists" and thus promotes the use of basic crypto tools.
 Also, if list archives contain /many/ specimens of your signature,
that enables people to have /some/ limited confidence that it "really
is your key" in the absence of direct personal contact or a trusted
introducer.

On the downside, it makes denying that you wrote something all but
impossible - "somebody stole my signing key and its pass phrase" is
not what someone who is trying to avoid embarrassment would like to say.

And the signatures annoy many people whose mail readers are not set up
to interpret them - possibly the best reason of all.

:o)
