And then we have vigilantes to take on the vigilantes ?
Or we do research and come to the conclusion that there is conflict within
the community ? Duh
I think we must take steps that will actually reduce conflict :
* When a person signs up to OSM, ask him a few multiple choice questions to
make sure he has the mastered the basics.
* Move the conflict to the wiki and deal with it there. The wiki shouldn't
just be used to document the use of tags, but be used to set standards. Lock
pages like Map_Features.
