That is, simply to say, nonsense.

There is nothing related that GDPR law that is OpenPGP related.
(Independent, that the GDPR is stupidly made.)

When it comes to keyservers, with the same argument you could state that
bitcoin is illegal. (No information in the key chain can be removed. And
there is even child porn inside that key chain that could never ever
again be removed!)

There are more technologies out there where informations, once in, could
never removed again.


Ps. By the way, I am neither a maintainer nor the creator of GnuPG or
    the OpenPGP standard.
