Could you please delete chromewatir gem?

It is already deleted everywhere else:

I have read

The reason why I would like the gem removed is because it is broken. Recent changes in Chrome completely broke it. I have contacted the author of the gem and he does not plan to fix it. He is already deleted the source from GitHub and I have deleted all Watir pages that talk about the gem. There is another Chrome driver that is functional (watir-webdriver), so this one is not needed.

We get a question here and there about the gem and I have to explain to people that it is broken.

    Hi there, sorry about the delay in the response here.

    I think yanking the gem would be a good first step, it will then stop showing up in search and in the case that someone actually does need it, they can get it. Does that sound acceptable?
