Here is the problem though. Why should I trust a signed certificate? If I go to a website and am prompted by an un-signed certificate, I need to determine if I trust that that web site.

If I go to a web site and their certificate is signed so no prompt but I have just blindly put my trust in the web site and in the nameless CA.

Personally, I don't trust the CA's any more than I trust some random website.

The herd instinct among economists makes sheep look like independent thinkers.
