I recently lost my e-mail account at university as I am not a student anymo=
Recently some people signed my key. Unfortunately, they also signed the use=
id belonging to the university e-mail account so that it now seems that thi=
e-mail address is still active. Therefore, I am thinking about revoking tha=
user id. First of all, what is the correct procedure to do so? Simply=20
selecting the user id in the edit-key dialog and using revsig to revoke my=
own signature on the user id?
Secondly, what are the implications of this? Does this break my signature o=
other peoples keys? And does this mean that other peoples signatures on tha=
user id can no longer be used by third people to establish a key chain to m=
key? (which would implicate that this user id should simply not be used goi=
forward but signatures made to it or signatures made by it still remain=20
Science is like sex: sometimes something useful comes out, but that is not =
