Thank you for keeping track of this!

I created a ticket in Trac as a central point to track the issue:

I fully agree with your assessment of the situation and have already
removed sea.us.* as a mirror for distfiles and packages. It is also no
longer listed on the wiki page.

I have not yet removed the DNS records in order not to immediately break
downloads for those that still have it listed in their ports tree, but
will follow through with this later.
