Why did you (codeberg) censor Baobab's respository https://codeberg.org/baobab/cloudflare-tor ? In addition to that why does it now show a 404 as if it never existed in the first place, which is not true. And finnaly why did you just deleted someone's repository without first notifying them of some sort of problem and giving them a reasonable amount of time to dispute or fix the problem before going and deleting things and causing a service disruption?
Baobob copied and pasted the email they got from Codeberg but it didn't make any sense and did not describe what the problem was. Only that ""illegal"" content is against the terms of service, but no proper description in what was illegal of what specific law was being violated.

After careful review of relevant law and the code in this repository we recognize that the repository contains:
- Repeated violation of privacy law, by means of numerous growing and actively updated "target lists", with personal data, lists of employment status, social media identities, linked to defamation and claims of support of the attacked entity). Publication of such data, no matter if true or not, without the explicit consent of the person in question is illegal in EU.
- This includes using personally identifiable information of other people without their consent for feigned commit author names and email addresses, potentially incriminating non-participants of acts of privacy violation and leaking proprietary information.
- Considering reports we received, a significant number of claims and statements were factually false. The pure existence of lists "Enemies of X" is by all rational means unlikely to have any other purpose than public shaming, defamation, threatening and libel. These are generally considered illegal in German law and elsewhere.
According to legal requirements we did remove access to the content in question immediately. We have disabled the repository in question to give you a chance to appeal against this decision via email before the content is deleted permanently.
