People freaking out that gitlab.com is considering to delete inactive free-tier repositories [1]... I mean what did you expect? Someone to host all your stuff for free forever?

Github will do exactly the same if that's at any point convenient to them. You are responsible for keeping your projects online/available/backed-up, if you don't have a contract with someone to do it for you.

Also, git is decentralized. People who centralize at one hosting service are responsible if things get deleted! Just push to multiple remotes, maybe even host one yourself!
