I'm trying to find a solution for this small mess in my key.
Some time ago I created my key to use it with my university machine. After a
long time of barely using it, I got some new email addresses so I added new
uid's to my key. Shortly after that, the university machine died, so my key
has now at least 1 uid I would like to get rid of. I deleted it from my
secret key, but I can't do the same for the pubkey. Some people have signed
it so each time I update my key I get this uid back into my pubkey.

Is there a solution for this, or do I have to live with this dangling uid

Thank you,
