https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/tosdr/EXAF59Ml1ks/DOiww_puLB4J Regarding suspension and termination of users' account: we would like to
compare GitHub and Steam. Hopefully this discussion could help us draw a
line between what's merely a practice not really fair for the user, and
what's really unacceptable.

Have a look at http://tos-dr.info/topics.html#suspension

We have
50 Steam: Valve can cancel your account at any time.

Section 10:C “Valve may cancel your Account or any particular
Subscription(s) at any time. In the event that your Account or a
particular Subscription is terminated or cancelled by Valve for
a violation of this Agreement or improper or illegal activity,
no refund, including of any Subscription fees, will be granted.”

and, we have
130 Github: Your account can be suspended and your data deleted
any time

“GitHub, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or
terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future
use of the Service, or any other GitHub service, for any reason
at any time. Such termination of the Service will result in the
deactivation or deletion of your Account or your access to your
Account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all Content in
your Account. GitHub reserves the right to refuse service to
anyone for any reason at any time. ”

So far, I see two important differences:
* Github's for *any reason* while Steam does not state so (does it
elsewhere?). This leads us to ask a question: what does it mean
for Steam? If they cancel your account for unvalid reason: what
can the user do?
* Github can delete your data, while Steam merely is about
cancelling the account. It was pointed out that GitHub is based
on Git which is distributed, so no important data would be lost.
But I disagree with this, as GitHub is way larger than just a
git repo hosting.
