I'm afraid you're out of luck.  The keyservers cannot delete UIDs -
they can only add.  What you can do is issue a revocation for the UID,
which marks it as unusable.  You can do this in the --edit menu by
using "revsig" to revoke your own signature on the UID.

This should really be in the FAQ.  It gets asked all the time.
