(twitter link) #github, apparently, has a contract with #ICE. twitter.com/evan_greer/status/

this looks like it might've predated the microsoft acquisition?

anyway i went on a little rant: twitter.com/zacanger/status/11

TLDR is github should drop this contract, and if they don't have a good solution within a week i'm moving myself and my side business off, and pushing $day_job to try gitlab self hosted.

reddit tech bros: "vote with your wallet, if you don't like some software just don't use it anymore"

me: "github works with ICE, i don't think i want to give them money"

reddit tech bros: "WAIT NO NOT LIKE THAT"

@zacanger

Read that disclosed email. Microsoft and Github are good guys in this.

@seachanged I did read the email.

"I disagree with the current policies," "Our parent company opposes the same policies," "Less than $200k, not financially material for our company," "We're going to donate $500k."

I don't see how this means MS and Github are the good guys. Donating is great, but enabling and profiting from ICE while having strong feelings about it doesn't make them the good guys.

@seachanged If I get paid to do a bad thing, but I have feelings about it, and I donate some money to a charity that will help to offset the bad thing I did, that doesn't make me a good guy, it makes me a bad guy who felt bad about being a bad guy.
