Guess what - I dont trust the OSMF - In the past the OSMF has decided
to relicense, decided to use the ODBL and decided upon the CT.

In no way the contributers have been asked - the people who actually did
the work. 

So why should i grant special rights to the OSMF via the CT? 

A good point about the CC-BY-SA, CC0, PD, GPL or BSD is that everybody
gets the same rights. Not so with the current relicensing.

With stating that my contributions are PD/CC0 i grant everybody the same
rights. The OSMF has stated that they going to delete my contributions
as i refused to grant special rights to the OSMF.

Does this only sound suspicious for me?
