Here lies a heartbreaking thing:

openstreetmap-website is actually a single person's project.

If you look at it, it's not "community developed this", or "OSMF developed
this", or even "a private club developed this" which you paint as a dark

It's being mostly written and deployed by the same person.
This is Bus Factor 1 scenario.

Short term: we need to keep Tom Hughes sane and safe.
Long term: we either close OpenStreetMap as a whole, or make sure there's a
bigger stable development team behind openstreetmap-website.
