there are reputable companies around, or ones who have been doing this stuff for decades (eg sourceforge, just as an example)
Whereas github was acting unprofessionally, the people who work there are still there, and are the kind of people who acted unprofessionally.. so you see that even though the wife is no longer allowed access, the rest of the workers are.
Do you trust a company that you have the assumption they treat your data well, or a company where you know they didn't? Do you think they'll suddenly turn things around and suddenly become the most ethical company there is, or will they just wait for the fuss to die down before continuing with their old ways?
This is no time to be a fanboi of a particular hosting company, not when there are many more to try. Besides, voting with your feet is the only way to remind these companies that they can fail if they, well, fail.
