My comments about SourceForge are based on my experience using it as a  
developer 3-4 years ago (the SSH setup was horrific, it might be  
better now) and as a user (the site is big, slow, and ugly).

Re terms of service, I think this is simply an excuse for not doing  
anything. I suspect that the citizens of Cuba, Iran, Libya, North
Korea, Sudan and Syria have more pressing things to worry about that  
whether they can access the LSID site (which at present, nobody can).
