I am curious why someone delivering security and privacy software does
not have HTTPS on their webserver.  Also what is that string after your
email address for?

That string looks like a key
That string is indeed a key. The format is Name <email> keyid
and you can search for either the name or the keyid to find someone's
key. If you search for the keyid
you know you have the right key. If you search for the name, you have to
verify the keyid somehow.
If this is a 'general protocol' type of thing (email), is there any
sense in having say a key prefix or namespace of some sort, so that
"confindant mail" keys aren't mixed up with "tox" keys etc?
Perhaps the key could have a header like:
---Confidant maile---
<random chars>end


This email is free from viruses and malware because avast! Antivirus protection is active.
