Hello. I was looking at the TOS, and saw that this forum is CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0, and was really surprised by the NC clause. This means that if I want to write a blog post that use monetization I can't directly re-use anything that someone wrote in this forum. Furthermore, the NC clause make it de facto non open.
NC licenses do not qualify as “open licenses” under the Open Definition, and works licensed under an NC license are not considered Free Cultural Works. This may be important if you want others to further distribute your work on Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, or other platforms requiring a license that meets the Open Definition or the Definition of Free Cultural Works.
This feels really contradictory with the general feeling I have of the Rust community. Most libraries are shared using BSD/MIT license and not GPL for maximum re-use. It feels surprising that – by default – comments on this forum don't follow the same philosophy.
IMHO, the rational should be added in the relevant section of the TOS or changed.
For my specific case, my blog isn't monetized, so I can just change the license for this specific post, or ask the people in the thread, but I am still concerned by this decision.
