Umm, what? Could you clarify?

Why yes, what I meant to say, "should not send a PDF that is editable".

Well isn't that the wonderful thing about FAXes. A bit of white tape or
White-Ex ....

Yeah but you can produce an original that can be verified and even
fairly well dated if it got to this level of legal questioning.

Whereas with a PDF, just letting it get edited digitally, there is no
such aging so you really kinda do need to digital sign PDFs of any
consequence even if the person at the other end says they don't accept
such things. Slap on your PNG/TIFF signature. But still digital sign
the PDF.
