    Hi there,

    We only remove gems under dire circumstances. Please check the FAQ here:

    Our policy is to only perma-delete gems that really need it, such as gems that may contain passwords, malicious/harmful code, etc. Yanking a gem effectively removes it from being found and will do the trick in 99% percent of situations.

    If there'a stronger reason to delete it, let us know.
