#5496: Hide author for closed plugins

 Permanently closed plugins continue to show the Author of plugins that are
 removed. While I appreciate the plugin-now-closed placeholder, I question
 the need to keep the Authorship & Developer details public.

 For example, I've just closed a test plugin of mine:

 The plugin continues to show
  - `By Me!` in the header
  - `dd32` under the `Contributors & Developers` header with the `“Test
 Plugin 4” is open source software. The following people have contributed
 to this plugin.` text.

 I propose we remove these two pieces of data.
 This also aids in how we handle plugins whose owners have requested data
 anonymization as this will remove the empty (or "anonymous 12345") texts.
