I share my feelings. You may or may not feel the same. If you are a cold
logical creature you may not understand these indirect mental correlations
(see many diversity threads on the issue).

>From my experience with OSM, anything that creates a policy is made for
stopping something from happening completely.
(See Import Policy (aka Never Import And Never Clean Up TIGER), Tile Usage
Policy (aka They Use Our Map Let's Ban Them), Mechanical Edit Policy (aka
Get Approval From All Our Users In Undefined Way Including This Luddite)
and others).

So, this questionnaire feels like another "Let's Ban Groups" or "Let's Ban
People Who Get Money" thing.
