Hm? These words have been misattributed to me.

I don't see any reason why the PGP trust model would be compromised by a keyserver network since the individual PGP 
user is checking keys and deciding which keys to trust. 

I welcome further conversation re:ISP-run keyservers on the keyserver-folks list, but I hope to see further 
coordination re: a NANOG keysigning party on this list.
