it also has other quirks:

it refuses to recognize a key with a hushmail domain
[even when it is clear that the key is not a hushmail generated pgp 

(even this wouldn't be so terrible, except that it doesn't alert 
anyone on the key submission interface page that it has this 

it just instructs users how to upload the key,
and then says it will send a confirmatory e-mail to the e-mail 
address on the key, and to follow the instructions in the e-mail

and then it NEVER sends the e-mail to the hushmail address on the 
and is not heard from again ...
