Problem of OSM is graphomania.
People want to write.
To write long books about openstreetmap.
To write long threads on openstreetmap. Even longer to prevent disputes.
When someone imports loads of shit, they keep silence.
When someone posts pictures of that, they laugh and make fun.
Nobody ist perfect. Ich am not.
I not wanted to write this post. But I have 24 hours free time to think. I was banned, and will be banned in future if laws not change. If you want to fix something in OSM you have to be graphomaniac. You will write tons of letters to change tens of objects.
I was told to announce so I announce.
is_in tag is_indikator of bad import. Look yourself at taginfo. If object author used is_in tag instead of Karlsruhe scheme he did his import carelessly.
ele tag is another bad import indikator. Look yourself at taginfo. ele=0 ist used on carelessly imported parkings, and non-touched GPS way points. I am not saying anything about http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/ELEVATION which sucks too.
For that reasons, I declare:
I will not upload any object with is_in tag. I will remove that tag. Not to lose data I will store all data from it into Karlsruhe schema.
As first thing after ban finishes, I process all un-elevated objects. Remove ele=, latitude=, longitude= tags. See what to do with other.
Ich want no war. OSMF und DWG will ban me if Ich edit too fast. I will wait for all the bans to finish. They limit maximum speed. I limit minumum speed. Ich set minimum speed fur mich as 50 000 nodes a day. If Ich edit 100 000 objekts per ein day, it is O.K. to ban me for day. If 150 000 - for two and so on. No more please, if you want no war too.
Being Worst OSM Fixer, remembering that OSMF promised to never tell anyone who Ich really am, Ich collect any letters and tweets about shit-imports, bad tags und other fixable stuff.
I promise to never tell any one who you are. Show me things you dislike. If thing you show me convinces me that all is bad there, I will fix it.
