So apparently right now in #Spain, ISPs were ordered to block access to #GitHub. I haven't seen a news article myself, but it seems to have been targeted at #Catalan developers, but somehow many more random developers are affected, perhaps GitHub is even blocked nationwide. I don't live there anymore but my friends there tell me. This is insanity. The government accidentally ordering ISPs to block all access to GitHub. I'd not be able to do any work that day. Or week. We'll see.
Can confirm its still going on, they fucked up and all raw.github is blocked.
Now Spain is next to Russia and China on online censorship.
Fortunately they suck and have no idea what they are doing, just changing the DNS fixes the problem.
A friend email an ISP, here is the response which more or less says that there was a judicial order to block the site and they don't know much else.
@enrique Wait Spain has an ISP called "PepePhone"??? That's incredible 🤩
Usually a great ISP, cheap, they don't force you to use a router, let you configure however you want, let's you get off the horrible Spanish standard of CG-NAT and they reduce your monthly cost every year you are with them.
