Debian Public Keys Error

I've been getting this error recently:

W: There is no public key available for the following key IDs:                              
9AA38DCD55BE302B                                                                            
W: There is no public key available for the following key IDs:                              
9AA38DCD55BE302B                                                                            
W: GPG error: http://ftp.cz.debian.org etch Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 9AA38DCD55BE302B
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

The way to fix it was to run these commands:

gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net --recv-keys 9AA38DCD55BE302B

sudo apt-key add ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg

sudo apt-get update



Is this really a good idea? Adding the key from a public key server? Why even use GPG in the first place if we're just going to go add keys we don't have from sources that anyone can contribute to?
