    From that moment you sent a key to a keyserver, you cannot Delete UID from it (only locally but obviously it's useless). But you may instead Revoque and send the updated key to the keyserver.
    Remember that "quit" means "exit without updating the keyring"; "save" means "save all changes to the keyrings and quit".
