I'm thinking to add one-line advocacy items to the bottom of my e-mails, advocating various causes that I believe in. The idea is to be a cyber "bumper sticker." Below are some items that I thought were interesting and may use.

As of May 8, 2009, I've changed my OpenPGP signing key in response to concerns regarding the [future security of SHA-1][1]. My old key will expire 1 Jan 2011; please use the new one for future electronic correspondence.

The Free Software Foundation has several taglines parodying Microsoft's advertisements placed in the footer of e-mails sent from their Live Mail service.

Some of those that I liked:
