Great write up @codepo8
! As a contributor and maintainer in OSS, this is spot on.
One good thing about the bad seeds is their comments are public in repos, so seeing that in the open is a free red flag not to hire those people.
Also, when people complain about a repo, the easiest response is "PRs are welcome!" 😉
On the good side of things though, I love OSS as a way to help others and share knowledge (as you mention in your post).
Great work everyone. 😎
Keep being awesome and looking forward to your next post.
