@neauoire Yeah, but shitty free t-shirts!
@neauoire do you think the spammers target specific languages?
I had some high-profile repos around last year and never got any spam PRs, maybe because they were Clojure. I've moved all but a handful off GitHub, but if I get any spam I'm probably moving the rest.
@technomancy mhmm they only target the ones with github pages I think, so far.
@neauoire interesting observation! I wonder what the reasoning is there.
I guess I should be safe if that's the case; I have my own hosting so I never bothered with GH pages.
@neauoire The solution that's working very well so far is moving the project away from GitHub.
I usually shop small providers near cities with an exchange:
I've had good luck with low end dedicated servers in second tier cities and completely avoided problems I've seen others have with larger providers - like custom kernels that don't behave well with container managing software (OVH), or provider's network bot interprets the traffic spike from your weekend game as a DDOS attack and drops all traffic to your servers until Monday (Hetzner)
@neauoire Maybe consider using a service that isn't GitHub.
@neauoire can confirm, got one of these this morning and realised it must be october 1st again
