Christine.. 

We mustn't define “the community” as the few remaining handful of people who have not yet been driven off the mailing lists by persistent abusers and trolls.

I am very aware of what people are saying about iD on all discussion channels.  I read all of it, even the stuff written in other languages, and even archives of mailing lists that I’ve long unsubscribed from.

I encourage everyone to not put too much stock into what “the community” of mailing list haters thinks about iD.  It’s the same dozen or so people who have never liked me or iD much anyway.

I meet with stakeholders every week about the improvements we’ve made in iD, and I’m proud of the work that our small team has been able to accomplish with each new release.  Right now there are 1000s of people editing with iD (most volunteering, but some paid) who will never stop by mailing list or a GitHub thread.  They far outnumber the voices that you hear on `talk` or `tagging`.

In large part because of the escalating negativity, I will not be attending State of the Map.  

My strong recommendation to you is to fill the program with content that encourages community health, inspires people to be better to one another, and celebrates the great things people are building with OpenStreetMap.

Thanks, Bryan
❤️, 🆔
