  I am sure I saw a weird thing somewhere... but now I checked the
manual, and just found the option to be able to sign a revoked key...
ok, it is silly, but not dangerous...

 Manuals insist in making fun of me... some days they say something, and
other days the same manual doesn't say that anymore XD

  Well, I figure it is like a safebelt... if you use it as it is
intended, is useful, but if you "close" it before sitting (so it would
be behind your back instead of in front of you), it would be really
useless. Now, I don't know if it is possible to do something like that
with gpg... I am *just* supposing.

  But actually, I can do stupid things with gpg... like sending you a
file encrypted to my own key...
