This is a good example to my cute bunny farm story (although your example is
not so fluffy and cute). So I think we cannot mark it as landuse=military
without some other source (referenced using source=*). Perhaps then it is
landuse=industrial with access=private. Are there any tags for dangerous
areas? I can only think of the jokes along the lines of landowner=angry
shotgun=yes for when you get shouted at trying to follow a public footpath
(in the UK they can cross fields but sometimes end up wrongly sign posted or
the farmer doesn't know/acknowledge/accept them).
Regarding the demand to translate the whole thread in 24 hours, I point them
to http://translate.google.com/ <http://translate.google.com/#> as I have
had to use when reading a few forum posts. But as we see, the automatic
translation given is not very helpful and I think it's really not helping
issues here. If anyone had the money (and I don't see why they should have
to spend it) to pay a professional translator, then I think 24 hours would
be a very difficult time to organise it (and while the thread continues to
