Well, if you want to contribute to a project to github then you are pretty fucked if the gate keepers won't let you

You're not "pretty fucked". Just use one of the many other git hosts out there. OP himself lists some of them in his rant.

You didn't seem to read what I said. I can't force other projects that I don't own off github.

Actually, you can do exactly that. Fork them.

You can't force the people who are using Github to follow you, of course. But that's every individual's choice.
