I just recently had another issue where we added a traffic signal tag that was already used, and then someone edited the wiki to rant about how iD is wrong and for people to not use the tag

Yes, I did not edit the page. (because I don’t care anymore)
Some people were upset that iD defaults normal traffic signals to have the tag `traffic_signals=signal`. Here is an issue:
M!dgard was mad that I closed the issue and so he started editing the wiki to say that iD is wrong
Minh and another editor have tried to tone down his language. He keeps putting it back.
This is one of the reason why I stopped caring about the wiki..
It’s not documentation. It’s just a bunch of prescriptive advice by random people. Most of the people involved don’t even work on software. They’re just really into tagging and arguing, and I don’t have time for it.
