Refresh Your Key from the Keyserver and then Revoke the UID which You
will have fetched from the Keyserver. Then Upload the Key with the
Revoked UID on it. Then Clean Your Key in Your Keyring and be prepared
to repeat having to deluid every time Your Key is either returned to You
signed because the revoked UID will forever remain on the Server.
For this reason many folks prefer to maintain a Listing on Big Lumber or
a Personal Web Page because only that way can You control exactly how
the Key is retrieved by Others.
