Wow, what a welcome! How about we drop this adversarial attitude everyone?
We all know there are different points of view, and disagreements, I'm not trying to smooth that over. 
We are simply going to have a better time working through licensing (and everything) if we treat each other with respect and coolness,
and not pointing out the problems in the past or possible futures. 
Make it cool people!

Now it's been called out in the past, but it's time again for a poem.

sure does feel like hell!
lightning rods, lengthy flames
where we going to assign the blame?
hey! forget the naming names
finger points all out of joint


doesn't that ring your bells?
a little courtesy, tip of the hat
forget the fail, go lolcat

we have the freely edible map
deliciously open, not proprietary crap
it is made by people like you
only need a license true
to our free hopes and dreams
and OSM will reign supreme
