    GitHub blocked without reason @alexbatalov account and archived all the repositories including fallout2-ce and fallout1-ce. And this does not looks like DMCA termination, usually in the DMCA case claimed repositories became unavailable at all, not just archived. And I see no same issues with other fallout projects on GitHub. I've asked Alex and he does not archived repositories and didn't terminated project himself.

    Apparently the reason are sanctions against some russian companies, and he works for one of them.

    I dunno, but mass censorship because your country is secretly at war with another country sure isn't a good look.
    Feels a bit like living in China I guess...so I can understand why people would consider it a bit like fascism.

    It sucks that he was affected by the sanctions, but I wouldn't take that as a sign the sanctions are inherently bad. Hopefully the files have been backed up by him and other people, and can be uploaded elsewhere.

    This is not censorship either....

    The repositories are archived. Everyone can still look at them and download them. Nothing is hidden or censored.

    People call everything they don't like "fascism" nowadays. It's very tiresome.

    not being allowed to say anything new...is still censorship, even if all the old stuff is still up (see Trump).
    and it seems like he's not allowed to make anything new on github...am I wrong in this assumption?

    wtf are you talking about. Trump is not censored in any kind of way. He keeps spewing his bullshit ever since and nobody is silencing him and his tiresome goons.

    @QuantumApprentice @Lexx

    depending on the way You look at it Ban is a form of restriction to free speech ones say it's a deserved punishment for inapropriate actions others say it's a unjustified restriction..

    The problem is ( or rather was) the fact that twatter's (and not only they) cultural norms went left so hard that they've reachced under the sidewalk level of acceptance and morality. so Trump's PoV was actually unaccepted by the majority of mass media inhabitants ( them beeing far left and having natural spasmatic allergy to whatever a medium level rightwinger/centrist does). However If i remember correctly, Musk after buying out twatter did unban trump right? So Trump is no longer beeing opressed in that matter.. or was it fake news?
    the fact that he now faces criminal financial charges is another side of this story. ( Although to what it seems Trump did made a *mistake* and broke the American Law, at least that's what liberal left media claim. though the evidence might be fabricated or the whole story could just be gigantic fake news). after what happened with the 4Chan AI missuse I won't trust anything that was said in any news until I'll find out for myself from other sources, or if i actually was there when something happened.

    Trump doesn't want to go back to Twitter. Besides, it doesn't matter - freedom of speech doesn't mean you are forced to listen to the bullshit of every single person. Trump and Co. can still use any other social network service if they want to (which they are doing with Truth social or whatever the fuck that is). Trump was never oppressed, saying that is laughable.

    Since certain russian companies are sanctioned, Github has to bend the knee and follow the law. That's all there is to it.

    And if the admins here at NMA suddenly banned you right as you released your Et Tu mod, cuz "reasons," would you:

    A) Say to yourself thankggod that wasn't real censorship. No real fascism exist on an online forums, itwould be laughable! Golly gee they be archiving my work shit anyway! Life is good.
    B) Flip your shit realizing you are being censored over non-sense, and the whole thing about other sites existing is clearly a cope. You cannot be made whole, life is bad.
