uBlock Origin too, or just uBlock?

uBlock’s own “uBlock filters” list has no mention of SourceForge. OP’s screenshot appears to be from uBlock Origin.

Yup. I just tested it, Origin blocks it.

the ublock filters allow sourceforge.net, but it doesn't allow "^$other" sourceforge pages.

It's been doing this for a few weeks now on my machine. A lot of software is still hosted on there.

Did it used to be reputable? Why did it get so popular?

It was a popular place for free project hosting that had version control (SVN) before git appeared to be popular, and the following project sites like github started up. Alot of projects moved over to git for convenience, preferring it over SVN.

As caffeine_pills replied to you, they bundled dodgy software in the downloadable installers of several projects (like toolbars and other questionable bloat/tracking/spyware) to projects without informing the project developers about it, consequently many projects have lost trust in sourceforge.
