#GitHub has a serious case of 'create a problem only to be able to write a grandiose blog post about how we saved all developers from the problem we created'.
Now they've taken down a repo because it had an Iranian contributor & they were supposedly so scared of the U.S. sanctions (which amount to a medieval siege btw) imposed on #Iran and the possible penalties for them were they they to leave the repo up, only to publish a grand blog post about how they unblocked all of GitHub for Iranians.
I am half expecting them to monetize all FLOSS repos on #GitHub only to donate the proceeds from doing so back with a blog post titled GIVING BACK TO ALL DEVELOPERS .
#GitHub continuing to suffer from their savior from themselves syndrome by again taking down a repository and then restoring it to great fanfare.
@MatejLach one also has to point out GIthub is a M$ subsidiary these days. So, makes total sense, doesnt it? :) :(
