No.  PGP will not stop people from ripping out little snippets and sub-
segments of what I have written (just as you have done on this occasion).

In essentially all cases to date, I do not mind when people do that.  It
is only on those very rare occasions when someone uses clever editing to
make it appear that I have said something that I didn't say that I might
get annoyed.
