I must say that I've only now realised that there is no "report abuse" button on github.

Regardless of politics and Chinese propaganda, hurling insults at someone on Github should be reason enough for action against their account. You can say that the news media is lying and all that, that's just daily grind for most English-themed media as well now, but yelling "fuck you" and "wishing a rotten vagina" upon people is not something that should ever be tolerated.

Then if GitHub was a living organism, it would lack an immune system to defend itself against infection.

There is. If you go to github.com/$user on the bottom of the sidebar left: "Block or report user"


There is. It's on the user profile page.

It really should be on each comment and issue the user has created.


Ah, thank you. Reporting specific comments would make a lot more sense, but I guess github isn't expecting people to use issue trackers as conversation battlegrounds.


You can report issues, pull requests, etc., but only if you have write permissions to the repository.
