I totally agree, but just want to add something..It's not even about government. We all might have different opinions about our governments, which is ok, and for example I also have mine, BUT, it very important to realise and accept that isolation the way it happens now will have completely opposite effect then expected..And another thing that I think IT people is one of the most free in the world in a sence of ability to exchange of information and also smart enough to make own conclusions about what they see and hear around... but point is that to make conclusion and decision you should be strong enough to get an information from many sides, otherwise its just an excuse to follow a mainstream without own opinion.. Again, may be there are lot of business reasons to block RU or whatever other regions you decide to block, but its more not to put any motto as an excuse as it leads only to escalations rather then understanding and finding right solutions.RegardsYuri

It wants to isolate ru people and you want to isolate ru people too. How wise!Leaving ru alone with propaganda won't help at all.People who do or want to contribute to the worldwide opensource projects are *not* the same as people who make or support war(s).GitHub got it right: https://github.com/github/feedback/discussions/12042On Fri, Mar 4, 2022 at 8:56 PM Konstantin Ritt <ritt.ks at gmail.com> wrote:Oh well, my codereview.qt-project.org account is also inaccessible. This is not about your attitude towards RU gov, but your attitude towards me personally.Sure I can use Tor to log-in from some other IP. But I wouldn't, that's your fault not mine.P.S. Do I have a moral right to put my -2 to contributions not due to the code quality but due to their author's mother language, country or nationality. Do *you* have a moral right to hit my rights due to my mother language, country or nationality?Konstantinпт, 4 мар. 2022 г. в 19:39, evilruff <evilruff at gmail.com>:Freedom is an ability to make an own judgments on things with a follow-up decisions which are explained rather then following popular trends without even close understanding the subject.. I am using Qt from version 1.33, and was a customer of TrollTech since then.. But I hardly remember Qt in any way followed any political agenda. Out of curiosity can you announce full list of blocked countries, may be North Korea or Iran? Just wondering if you block Crimea users after 2014? There were hell of the wars and military conflicts around the world since 2000, and I don't think that it was a matter for Qt ever. I mean really, its open source thing, there are things like VPN, proxies.. we all here in IT world, practically it will mean nothing at all rather then adding oil in already started fire.. Declaring sanctions that way is nothing then escalating conflict, my view on this that in reallity its a demand of 'large scale' sponsors and companies supporting Qt, but do you truly think it has anything about freedom, democracy etc?It would be much better to say - listen, we are open source and prefer to stay out of politics as we know nothing about that, but we are company and majority of our top customers pushed such decision and we decided that our commonwealth is more important... I mean it could be good or bad but at least it will be true...RegardsYuri-------- Исходное сообщение --------От: Denis Shienkov <denis.shienkov at gmail.com> Дата: 04.03.2022  7:09 ПП  (GMT+03:00) Кому: development at qt-project.org Тема: Re: [Development] Maintainance Tool 
    Yes, it's kind of hysterical. I don't understand what the Qt
      company wants to achieve in the end? What is the purpose?
      So far, it looks more like a clowning: "the circus is gone, but
      the clowns remain."
      Qt Company can't stick your tongue out of the USA ass? :)
    I had a higher opinion of Qt Company up to this point ...
     This is not serious somehow, some kind of kindergarten. LOL. :)

        As long as I can fetch sources I wouldn't take any actions.
        But anyways, bringing your own political preferences to the
          open source world rules is a quite hypocritical move.
        In the adult world, it doesn't matter if your community
          members / contributors have a skin tone, political or sexual
          preferences not like yours, or an IP address that belongs to
          some particular territory.

              It is because your IP is detected to be in a
                  country we do not allow downloads. If you are not able to access something
                  you have purchased then let me know and I will get
                  someone to get in touch with you directly about this.
                  Otherwise, for the time being, this IP block will be
                  in place.

                  I don't care. I need some
                    explanations here, at public dev ML.

                        I imagine you're using a russian IP address, so
                        this[1] should shed some light on the matter.
                        Kind regards,
