We submitted a gem "linkedin2" to today but unfortunately we do not allow to publish it. I tried to remove it but it seems there is no way to do it from website.
Could you help us to remove it permanently?

    Hi there,

    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's a stronger reason to perma-delete the gem, please let us know.
