Yeah it's ridiculous! GPG is badly designed in many ways. A culture of intimidation and slogans like "don't implement your own crypto" has painted us into a corner where there's no good working software for encryption. Another problem is that everybody has demanded ultimate security as priority above ease of use. Something like autocrypt could have been very easy to use and increased the cost of mass surveillance enormously but everyone has been so stubborn.
