"Inherit permissions" should default to unchecked when forking (BB-9382)

i'd like the ability to disable the "inherit permissions" checkbox when forking a repository.

if disabling it isn't an option, i'd like it to not be checked by default.

i often forget to do so, and as result, have to spam everyone on my team when i remove their permissions.

example:

    This used to be very important - you used to not be able to view a pull request without having access to the fork.

    Since that limitation has been removed, inheriting permissions is no longer required and should no longer be the default state of the check-box.

    Its arguably a security issue - you could inherit permissions that you didn't intend. Better to default to not selected.
