(suggestion) Upload keys as default

Taking the advice of familiarizing myself with the software and doing a couple "trial runs" I generated some keys and deleted them to know the process before I made one I would use. Not knowing that keychain access defaults to uploading keys to the specified keyserver as soon as they are generated, I now have a couple keys with identical profiles to my real one floating around in cyberspace. I suggest that on future versions of the software, this feature is not enabled by default.

    Hi Brendon, I can understand your frustration. GPG Keychain Access should ask you, what it should do with newly created keys during the creation process. See the screenshot "Upload key after generation".

    If that box is ticked, GPG Keychain Access will upload the key once the creation process is finished.

    Best, steve
