Dear @gitlab, after reading this, I am ashamed to be using your product:
We will stop using it as soon as we can manage to and I will stop recommending you to others. Unlike you, we don’t associate with folks incompatible with our values.
Shame on you.
@szbalint @aral @gitlab Agreed this is really bad. That addendum not only gives them a framework to justify collaborating with horrible people, but furthermore they "welcome everyone outside of [the] restrictions" of "trade compliance laws". And the commit is from the founder and CEO himself, who seems to be a major figure in the organisation. The text has gone live https://about.gitlab.com/company/strategy/#customer-acceptance
