a lot of prestigious fields (showbiz, publishing, broadcasting, journalism, government, etc) require people to spend several years working as unpaid or barely paid interns before they build up their contacts and resume enough to land a real job

and surprise surprise, those fields are overwhelmingly made up of people who had the family resources to pay their bills (usually in an eyewateringly-expensive city like NY/SF/LA/DC) in their twenties while they basically gave up their work for free

it would be kind of maddening to be struggling with homelessness while knowing that many large companies rely on your software for day-to-day operations and/or your poo poo got stolen by some vc who flipped it into a profitable thing.
if you have a problem with people making money off of your work and giving you none of it...maybe dont release under a license that lets people freely reuse it and not pay you anything?

also quick ad for sourcehut which fits this model really well because:
- the issue tracker is your personal TODO list, not someone else's way to get free work. user reports can only be sent via mailing lists
- mailing lists are an optional feature and you can just have repos that effectively don't accept bug reports
what about a repo that responds to every bug report with "lol. lmao."? could you implement that functionality?
