#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.

#GitHub continuing to suffer from their savior from themselves syndrome by again taking down a repository and then restoring it to great fanfare.
