How many votes do I need :-)

The extent of the Australian community is unclear to me due to
recent problems.

However  these edits will have to be removed eventually since
both bot owners have made it 100% clear that they will not
change from decliners to acceptors, and even if they did their
bot edits could be reapplied.

The bottom line is that, in order to visualise what roads need
remapping now, to save some good edit's information and to
prevent major map degredation if roads or connections
disappear, it is necessary to "see below" the maxspeed

I can see only two ways to do this.

1) Remove the edits.

2) Get OSM Inspector to ignore them.

Either way would be equally good for me to allow me to
prepare well for licence changeover.
