It’s the same thing for me. The system hasn’t said what the problem is but it seems to correlate with adding documentation to my wiki that links to “whatever.com”. The other time I wrote a wiki page that used a phrase that is trademarked (very annoyingly trademarked as its a very generic phrase).
Yet it seems very very aggressive. In the case of the single link to the .com address I was saying how to install my software on a SaaS service. What would happen to GitHub if every other site in the internet blocked opensource users from creating links to github.com? Think about it. It’s totally nuts to just say “we blacklist any opensource organisation that makes a single link to another site” or uses a trademark name where that trademark would actively encourage links from GitHub users (e.g. redhat.com, ibm.com, etc)
It almost like GitHub saying “you cannot be part of the internet your only allowed to link to us or our parent company”.
There are so many problems with what is going on here. Like why does my whole organisation, with a dozen repos, get blocked when on the wiki of my documentation repo there is one trademark or one link on one page? It’s total madness to cause an outage on my whole organisation. At the very least it should be seen as a “minor matter” and just give me a warning before blocking the one repo.
Also, any sane system would just block the page that was flagged by the spam system. That would be totally beyond the wit and technical capability of a typical enterprise business that runs such corporate minded software. Yet surely GitHub can figure that out with a filter rule on a reverse proxy? What madness caused them to go live with a minimum viable product that blocks the whole org? It has to be a low point in the history of GitHub to come up with that solution.
