A: I want to change all highway=level_crossing to
railway=level_crossing, because <rationale>.
B: That's not a good idea because <rationale>.
A: See, the problem we have here is this constant negativity on the OSM
mailing lists. I make a good suggestion and I'm shot down immediately!
B: I'm not negative, I just thought your proposed change wasn't thought
through very well.
A: See, now I've pointed out a problem in the general communications
style, and the first thing you do is to claim that there is no problem.
You're in denial!
B: I just think it's not a good idea to change all
highway=level_crossing to railway=level_crossing.

group> will not be willing to join this mailing list if people like you
are allowed to dictate the climate.
