The article was not deleted because Wikipedians think GitHub isn't notable, much less that because they're somehow trying to suppress knowledge of it. They deleted it because (as far as I can tell) it contained no information about Tom Preston-Werner beyond the fact that he created GitHub and Gravatar, and that single fact is already mentioned on both companies' pages. I don't see any conspiracy here, especially given the existence of this: https://github.com/wikimedia

fair enough, appreciate your input.
