IMO skipping the verifying isn't a good approach. Instead of typing

  gpg -h

and then
  gpg --recv-keys

I added an alias, since I seldom need to import a key and can't
remember what abbreviation for "receive" is used
( http://www.abbreviations.com/abbreviation/Receive ;).

$ grep gkey ~/.bashrc 
alias gkey='gpg --keyserver hkp://pgp.uni-mainz.de --recv-keys'

IIRC an uncommented line "keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve" in
gpg.conf automatically imports missing keys.

$ grep auto ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf 
# keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve
