I wont accept the CT as it grant special rights to the OSMF. I would
be happy to check a box saying my edits are CC0/PD. But why on
earth should i grant the OSMF the right to relicense? Its about
trust and the OSMF did nothing to gain my trust in the whole process.

So right now i cant continue editing because my login is blocked
as i dont grant special rights to the OSMF.

This is just a myth - There has been no poll of the contributers
which license would be acceptable. And a Forum on a SOTM to "discuss"
already thought of license content is not a poll, not an open result
