Incompetence is often difficult to distinguish from malice.

So am I, so do I, and that's exactly why you're way out of line for
blaming me for OSM rejecting the data I created in good faith. I created
it thinking it'd be useful for me and others. If you don't want it,
that's annoying but it's your right. If you want to blame me for your
rejection, you can shove it up your arse. I owe you nothing.

Nice attitude. You wonder why we continue to be disappointed at your
behaviour and that of OSMF?

It won't be as good as it can be if you continue to reject contributions,
drive people away from the project and fracture the community.
