Re: Github TOS effecting change to copylefts?

I see it as overhyped and exaggerated. Github has a bad history with their
legal/PR teams. Remember when they adopted the 'feminism code of conduct'?
Promoting 'reverse racism' allowed the harassment of anyone who wasn't
politically correct? That lost a good chunk of users.

But in the long run the legal team actually did nothing about it. So many
people complained about it that they really chose not to enforce it.

I presume the same will happen here. I'm sure the FSF is simply trying to
bully github into promoting copyleft in their TOS (rather than not talking
about it at all).
