I read this on the net today. Someone from eastern europe took down a few sites including sourceforge.  Time to move to github satoshi ?

Its disconcerting to realise someone was poking around in everyone's repo's.

I know that's a bad thing, it's wrong, but the way you word it somehow makes it sound... dirty Smiley

dont you feel slightly dirty?

It would be like knowing someone has burgled your house but unsure if they wiped their ass on your toothbrush.

Yeah, slightly dirty, sure. Privacy need is a touchy subject.

But I'm a moderately paranoid person, according to my own standards. My keen say I'm obsessed, go figure. That means I never, ever assume I have any kind of privacy on any service I don't run myself. That is why you will not find me on any social network, and I would never post any critically confidential or sensitive code to sourceforge, github or whatever. It does becom impractical and does not scale, but this approach has served me well to this day... that and open sourcing all that can be open sourced.

And even those I do run, I tend to use stuff like, I don't know, operating systems and server software that I did not write myself nor did I inspect the full source, so I don't assume I have full control over anything that people actually have access to. But that's just me
