GCHQ at British embassy in Berlin

Posted by Kays on 5 December 2013 in English (English)

Sorry folks, but I'm not in the mood playing jokes with the rumor whether GCHQ operates from within the British Embassy in Berlin.

So i've removed it (cmp CS|hist). A solidarity statement as the OSM-community would be more adequate.

Location: Mitte, Berlin, Germany, European Union

"I'm not in the mood" Then don't, but don't dictate what is right or wrong and don't delete things based on your mood. OSM is not the wikipedia.

"with the rumor" Rumor? Oh yeah, leaked documents are now treated as rumors.

We don't need people destroying others' work.

Don't dictate me whether I shall edit depending on my mood!

Which document (on WL)?

I don't think OSM is the place for fantasy-mapping. If it is I immediately start adding middle-earth. Anyway the node history says it was a joke and I've wrote a note to Kolossos where he doesn't complain about my edit.

So if you really mean the GCHQ-building has to stay there – maybe if you even know that it is there as you're working there – then I can't stop ya to do so. I've found the information i wanted to know.

Wen/was meinst Du mit „4 nodes hinzugefuegt und 8 geloescht”?

Ich will nicht irgendwas von Bedenken, dass es dort einen Abhoerstation gebe, lesen. Entweder ist dort sowas oder nicht.

Ich hab' u. a. noch nie was bei WP geloescht. Ausserdem ist hier auch nichts geloescht. Die Daten liegen weiterhin vor. Falls Du die die passenden Berechtigungen hast, kannst Du ya einfach meine Aenderung widerrufen.

Ich stimme dir (Kays) vollkommen zu. Ich musste zwar erst darüber schmunzeln, dass das jemand da eingetragen hat, aber ich hätte wohl gleich gehandelt wie du. Sowas hat in OSM einfach nichts zu suchen.

==Englisch Version== I agree with you, Kays. Well, I had to smile first, when I read about that tag, but overall that is nothing that has a place in OSM. I would have deleted it accordingly.

Thx, katze_sonne, for your supporting words. I didn't thought that I may face protests rather than comments giggling about the fact the building was there for almost a month.
