When you put open source software out there in the wild there is a mutual understanding that, you are going to see my source code, and probably take some influence from it into your own source code.

Not that bad. I often see examples (even of Open Source code) on the web from which I can assume which classes I can use to solve a problem the best way.

As an open source developer, we all know this is happening and we all know this is alright, encouraged, and to be expected.

Not alright for everyone... Encouraged? Is a woman wearing a bikini encouraging men to grope her? IMO -> No!
To be expected? Sadly yes...
