Khalid Shaikh removed from appstore?

So I'm looking for an unrelated app and low and behold, up comes up one of Khallid's piece of craps. It's $4.99 and has an awful icon, go figure. So I click it to see how bad the icons and description are... and get the message that this app is not available in the U.S. I do another search for Khalid Shaikh, and ALL of his apps are giving this message. Could it be that Apple FINALLY removed him???

About. Freaking. TIME.

He's gone from the Canadian store, too. I hope this is a permanent thing and not just some temporary problem with his dev account he'll eventually resolve. I'd love nothing more than to see his crapps unceremoniously yanked and shredded and never hear his accursed name again except in future "Hey, remember that douchebag" threads.

Now we just need to do something about Brighthouse Labs...

That's only #2 in terms of the total cost of all of his apps in the App Store -- which any moron can do if they have enough apps (either in low-priced quantity like Brighthouse Labs, or high priced like Iceberg)

There is, however, a deeper truth in Khalid being #2...
