Exclude github.com

Post by mcandre » Sun Nov 12, 2017 8:22 pm

GitHub.com's UI is quite broken without JavaScript, and this website is extraordinarily popular, especially with developers, so NoScript should probably exclude this domain by default.

mcandre. this is incredibly arrogant. suggesting a significant exclusion without any reason is not a good way to get any changes made. i see you've made bunch of similar requests for your favourite sites to be whitelisted, as if your use case is somehow special or superior to others. it isn't.

So what if github is popular with developers? Fox News is popular with christian gun nuts, The Guardian with woolly-headed liberals, Reddit with libertarian programmers, Riseup with anarchists. In fact, *every site* is popular with someone. Why are programmers/github special (hint: they're not)?

Actually, default-whitelisting github.com might possibly have a valid use case in the foreseeable future as NoScript source code and bug tracking will be moving to Github. Whether it will be default-whitelisted or not is up to Giorgio.

That said, robinp's post still stands.
