Why the SourceForge website is dead to me

The link I clicked on was contained in a post from the University of South Wales security and privacy blog (which I have followed for years), about using Ophcrack, yet another Windows XP password cracker. Ophcrack is a free open source program hosted on the SourceForge website.
Turns out that uBlock Origin isn’t blocking code so much as blocking the SourceForge website itself — something it’s been doing since at least June 24! And I guess I can’t blame it; I haven’t gone near the website for months.
