I agree wholeheartedly with disliking their pull-request interface (the encouragement to use a non-mailed-patch workflow plus the fact that push notifications don't include diffs means that diffs never land in my inbox, which is unfortunate), and disliking the popular equivalence of Github with git.

That said, "They do not improve or contribute to git itself" is simply untrue. Many of the most active git contributors are Github employees. The git website itself was designed by Github people and is hosted by Github; the Pro Git book is written by an employee.
