Ok, I understand. I use gsuite ( It has a banner as such on TRC ), but
seems I have not bothered to make those changes.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you are using Gsuite by choice you can
configure it to not do it. And if it is given to you by our employer,
as is my case, it does not seem to right to bypass the way he has
configured it to work ( so, if you use lua-l for work just leave it as
is, if you use it personally just use another mauil service to
subscribe ).

I do not think PGP is going to do any good for that. But I'm not too
familiar using it with mail, so as long as it is optional, no problem
with it. But, as somebody pointed out, public mailing lists are a
problem. I just assume anyone can post anything and read everything
and just go ahead.
