    Russians need to be disconnected from the global internet. Give the Russians their own intranet so they can not bother anybody else. I prefer Indians and Chinese to have access to the global internet but the Russians must fester.

    The sooner Russia collapses, the better. Russia needs to get an actual proper sanction package on them that disconnects every Russian from the world.

        I don't see how.
        The Russian economy is the same size as the BeNeLux.
        And all they really export is natural resources, which can also be obtained elsewhere.

        The biggest threat is probably to the Middle East who rely on food imports from Russia and Ukraine.
        But again there are alternatives.

      First one is some protester hobbyist who erases data from developer devices and CI builders, which respectively hold code likely to be version controlled elsewhere and don't hold any important data respectively, and only if you're in Russia or Belarus
      Second one likely is some infiltrated state actor agent who attempted to compromise every single Linux device that looks like it matters, in the entire world
      There is a bias and both should have been banned but the stakes aren't the same

      Yeah, isolate them from the global internet, so that they don't have any stake in it anymore and their hackers commit more cybercrime against you with even less repercussions

      Yes but also isolate India and China.

    Wait they didn't terminate the account of the first guy?
    Xe's still active today?

    Suspending an account pending investigation of an incident should be the very least github should do, regardless of politics.
    You don't know what else they will do if they can still alter code or even just post "advice".

    the powers that be decided russians are like white people so it is ok to commit any sort of act against them that would be considered a crime under ordniary circumstances such as hacking, terrorism, murder, rape, theft. Even stackoverflow troony mods were writing guides on how to DDoS random russian IP's, on the "theory" that anything you can do to make life more miserable for any russian anywhere is a way to fight putler and bring freedom and democracy to the world.
    these people are literally insane.
