Like many open source projects, we require that contributors provide us with a Contributor License Agreement (CLA). By submitting code to the Forem project, you are granting us a right to use that code under the terms of the CLA.

Open-source and CLA? Hell fucking no. CLA's are generally opposite to what real open-source is.

I will contribute no code to their repo under current conditions. Because its not open-source as team can do everything with your code without even saying a word.

I’ve only signed a CLA for code contributions, not GitHub issue discussions

I understand, but ( for me ) opening issue ( discusing feature/s and/or code ) is also way of contributing. I want noone to take my idea, write it as code, and attribute him/herself to it. Its a theft.

Well, TBH I wouldnt call myself selfish. Worry not, I do not feel insulted/offended.........

Getting value from OSS? Using != getting. :)
