GPG Services: Message decryption

as I know every PGP encrypted message needs private key to unlock (and check sig after that)
a huge thing that I can't understand is file like this:

I decrypt that message (message in the web!) and it tell me whats inside that and who signed that !
but what was the KEY ?
its not encrypted?

    Hi goldenstarc,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    The message in question is only signed and not encrypted. That is why you see verification results.

    The format that is used when you sign some sample message with GPG Services is a bit different and less confusing.

    All the best,
