Rascals are always sociable, and the chief sign that a man has any nobility in his character is the little pleasure he takes in others company. Arthur Schopenhauer

Today I deleted my GitHub account

You probably are familiar with Marak Squires and his faker.js project. GitHub (actually Microsoft, there is no GitHub anymore) suspended his account and prevented him from accessing his own code, of course, serving the interests of the corporations and not the developers. Regardless of who Marak might be and what he might have done, GitHub is not the police nor the government and they should not have done what they did. It was Marak’s own corner of the Internet for him to publish his own personal projects.

Of course some miserable “people” stepped in to fork his project and of course they are not in any way linked to AirBnb, Ycombinator, OpenCollective, Democracy Earth Foundation and the likes. No sir, nope.

Today I deleted my GitHub account. It was inactive anyway so there isn’t much of a change. Remember what Microsoft really is.
