Perhaps that link would have been useful in your original post.

While I do think that it's kind of a dick move to not respect _why's
deletion of his repos, I think your arguments here are flawed.  It's
not a violation of privacy to publish open source code.  It's no
different than those of us who had local repos republishing them.
This is the nature of open source software... it lives on even after
the original creator goes away.
