#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.
Previously they of course infamously took down youtube-dl's repo with immediate effect, with no real recourse for the authors only to restore it days later and somehow spin it as STANDING FOR ALL DEVELOPERS on their blog.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
