I Revoke a UID and provide a 'Reason' (which GnuPG allows)
My Reason: Changed ISP (in my Case the Truth; joimail.com to
Now I Upload to the Keyservers; what happens to the Signatures on my
former UID? I still do not know.
Based upon what what I have read/been told....no worries. I signed both
New UIDs. And most of the Sigs were on my Generic UID. Therefore >
