Just got what looks like a form letter from one of the talk@ moderators. Sigh.

You have continued to post on talk@, violating several points of etiquette

* Stay on Topic
* No Conspiracy theories
* Assume Good Faith
* Nitpicking doesn't help you or anyone else

Since just last month, you received a 24 hour ban, you are now receiving a 1 week ban from talk.

Maybe in some cases, but with respect to splitting and joining ways, they're being extremely liberal and assuming that a new way ID is a new way wrt licensing. That is, unless they're not going to follow the precedent of the existing tools, in which case we're in rather deep shit.

I happen to stray into that "so last century" mode of group internet communication, called mailing lists (something I never normally do)when I started looking for an alternative to OSM. Out of all the moderation I have seen over the years (and that's quite a few!) the moderation on OSM talk seems oppressive.
