Mass censorship, privacy violations and trackings are surging everywhere right now.
Given Microsoft’s acquisiton of GitHub in 2018, the temporary censorship of youtube-dl, GH’s Copilot, I don’t think GH is a good place to store my repositories anymore.
GitLab (gitlab.com instance) is not a good choice either because they block TOR users:
$ torsocks --isolate git clone https://gitlab.com/pycqa/flake8 Cloning into 'flake8'... fatal: unable to access 'https://gitlab.com/pycqa/flake8/': The requested URL returned error: 403
Moreover, they have the annoying captcha and the anti DDOS things that never work which prevented me from logging in with some browsers so I removed my account there.
Have a look at these posts for other reasons:
Anyway I will keep the account for now in case I have to contribute to some project hosted on GH.
