[GPC] [Owasp-google-hacking] Update Needed

There are a number of reasons that your project is being marked as inactive.
Not in the least, your attitude about all of this raises concerns.
Some legitimate issues were raised regarding the status of your code, and
your project overall. Rather than addressing these concerns, you've
attempted to divert the process by complaining about harassing emails and
twitter feeds, while blaming others for your lack of action.

I suggest you worry less about Tom, Towny Roberto, and others, and look
closely at your actions and attitude, as well as the project and
organization that you've used to gain visibility in the application security
