was there in GitHub management who took this decision

I doubt that. It's not Github who said "eh just block Iran lulw". I'm sure they didn't want to do that at all, but if you're going to ignore the laws of the country in which you're doing the business, it will fall down very quickly. And since Github is not a non-profit organization, I guess it would cost them less to block Iran rather than get kicked off of U.S. That sounds horrible, but that's how it works.

Well, I don't watch CNN, so you are wrong from beginning. If they develop calmly in their country with terrorist government, it means, that they support it(developing nuclear weapon etc)So, why do they use enemy's service? I'd like companies be even more tough on things like this.

Remarks. By support I mean no physicals, I mean mental support of ideology and doings. And I think it is wrong and stupid ban people from Iran, who live and commit from other countries for many ages

If it's a criteria US develops nuclear weapons as well. It's always easier to stick labels than work on the problems themselves.

So your trust to Iran government is the same with USA?)

Sorry, developing nuclear weapons is the criteria you provided for being a terrorist state, not my idea.

Terrorist government developing nuclear is the criteria, don't manipulate
