Thanks for raising this issues.

I've removed the GitHub Sponsors and Paypal links from orgmode.org.

I've not removed the link to https://liberapay.com: I suppose it is
usable without requiring non-free Javascript, but I've not checked.
If someone wants to check, that'd be appreciated.

I've not removed every links to github.com on orgmode.org: e.g. the
link to TEC's homepage at the bottom of the website is still here.

The reason is that browsing TEC's GitHub profile does not require
non-free Javascript: I can browse it fine with M-x eww.

I guess we shall remove references to non-free software (like the
Sublime Text editor - I will do this later on.)

Yes -- please report other problems for orgmode.org.

Here is my view on this: the orgmode.org website is part of the GNU
project because Org is part of the GNU project, hence the root pages
of https://orgmode.org should follow the GNU standards.

Worg is different: it is a community-driven documentation about Org.
Even though worg contents are licensed under GNU FDL, they are not
part of the GNU project.

If needed, we can make this clearer on the website or even host worg
on a dedicated domain name.
