Sorry to see it end this way, but to Dan’s point all the rugs are being pulled out from under this service. I will continue running my nodes, but it does seem like the official SKS key server network has reached the end of the road. As of yesterday, all of the pool DNS records were pulled. If you click through the expired SSL certificate to reach you will find this:

This service is deprecated. This means it is no longer maintained, and new HKPS certificates will not be issued. Service reliability should not be expected.

Update 2021-06-21: Due to even more GDPR takedown requests, the DNS records for the pool will no longer be provided at all.

Due to the demise of the SKS pools and non-renewal of the SSL certs, i'm shutting down and keyservers with immediate effect.

If you peer with either of them, please remove the entries from your membership files.

It's been a good time, and i'm glad I could help over the years - but time is over.
