Harry Wood admin abuse. Do we need him as admin at wiki??? 2 months ago

For the record I don't think serious changes have been made to the content of the main post here - the earliest cache I could find was which is by and large the same.

I think it's very hard to hide behind the "quoted out of context" thing with the things I've quoted. It's hard to imagine what sort of original context they would have to be in for me to be misrepresenting them here. I'm simply pointing out places you directly contradict yourself.

When it comes to good faith, I'm sure you want to make the map better (however you see "better") but you seem to be someone who thinks and behaves very unilaterally, finding it very hard to accept that the majority of people disagree with you. There are plenty of things I have an opinion on, but I realize that I am in a relative minority in the community and so I don't do anything about it.

But the personal attacks are largely moving onto zverik now - should he "say goodbye to his reputation" too? All of your rants seem to be very individual and personal. Is there anyone who you don't think has wronged you?

I always attacked his statements and his arguments, but not himself.


Main message is that Harry Wood is clueless tard forcing his unsupported view as OpenStreetMap consensus or final decision made by admin.

"I'm not attacking Harry."

Is this a joke or are you attempting to backpedal?

You can't possibly be serious posting that sentence beneath the above diary entry. I note though actually you seem (?) to have edited the main text of this and possibly removed the most scathing remarks. I wonder if a cache exists somewhere on the web of the original version. Would be interesting to see.

@d1g: do you think anyone's opinion should be heeded but your own? it doesn't sound like it.

I'm not sure why you're making this an ad hominem thing about Harry. You're probably rationalizing things and convincing yourself that it's Harry in particular that has a problem with you, and it couldn't possibly be that you are doing anything wrong. You'd be very wrong in thinking this. Harry is just the caretaker.

If you really want to know how popular you are try popping up on IRC under your real name and air your views.

As for "Harry Wood never had interest in OSM being TRULLY international", you clearly have never met him or really ever spoken with him. Or have any idea about him. I'm really appreciative that he does the work he does dealing with people like you so the rest of us don't have to. From your attitude I can clearly see why this "xxzme" person people had been moaning about was so worth banning.

Thanks for all your hard work Harry!

(I am strongly of the opinion that we need to look at getting functionality like this integrated into at somepoint in the near future)

Very interesting. I love the concept of this.

How do you deal with non-atomic changesets? I can't imagine generating the diff can be simple in cases you have changesets overlapping in time windows & affected feature sets.
