I think you'll have a hard time convincing people that when speaking
about human rights activists in North Korea, it's somehow inappropriate

threats to human rights, and it doesn't do anyone any good to pretend

No, you're not.

Evacuation and replacement requires a replacement exists.  The moment
you present an alternative that's running and working and stable, *then*
we can have a discussion about moving to the exits.

US keyservers are.  The only thing EU regulations will do is end

The SKS community has been discussing a considerably worse nightmare
scenario for the past seven years.  There have been a number of flawed
