This is amazing:
bleepingcomputer.com/news/secu

tl;dr:
1. a developer of a bunch of popular packages publishes new, intentionally broken versions of them as he doesn't want to support for-profit companies with his free work;
2. NPM *reverts* the packages to older versions against developer's wishes;
3. GitHub *blocks* the developer for acting "irresponsibly".

That story again: developer blocked by for making changes to his own code.

This is why and @forgefriends are so important!

@rysiek I don't understand why these news article do a link between this action and a message from 2020 when the dev is currently only speaking about bizarre stuffs (conspiracy) about Aaron Swartz death. Do I miss something?

@rysiek Yes I see that, but what let people think that his action is linked to a lack of remuneration in open source? I mean, they use a message from 2020 to justify that. But the dev seems to only speak about Aaron.
