None of them (not even the OSM webpage!) attribute the OSM
contributors properly. The CC-By-SA license requires all contributors
are listed. Yes; all ~60 000 of us.
We imply that some legal conditions on map use should be enforced
while others should not. Our wiki's legal faq does a bad job of
communicating this to would-be users of the maps.
