I decided that I will be #movingtogitlab after this drama. But, one can't even delete their Github account once it has been flagged. I complained to Github, and got back a response after three days:
Thanks for writing in! Our spam filter seems to have made an error in flagging your account for further review, which blocked your ability to delete that account. Apologies for the temporary blockage.
@tuxether Any idea what Microsoft didn't like?
@alcinnz Nope. I was using Github like I always do.
@tuxether Then contact support.
They can't get away with this!
@tuxether I think enough people misunderstand the term "free software" to maybe start using the term 'open software' instead.
Also, the term: 'open source' is being both diluted and polluted.
"Open Software" - also works for "Open Hardware" , "Open Networks", "Open Designs" , "Open Licenses-of-every-kind"
@tuxether what the actual fucking fuck
FLOSS.social was launched on 1 April 2018 as a Mastodon instance for people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS). Of course, discussions aren't limited to just FLOSS -- let's share our unique interests! English is preferred for maximum conversation opportunities within the FLOSS community, but it is not required. Respect is required, however: Users on FLOSS.social agree to abide by the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct. This service was installed and is maintained in part by Masto.Host with equipment located at OVH. You can support this instance financially through the Monthly Supporter Program, processed through CommitChange using the free software Houdini Project.
