You can refer to me by my name if you want :)

Part of my rationale for adding the stop_position nodes and stop_area
relations to all North American train stations was to prevent many of the
errors Alexey brought up. If the ptv2 elements of a station are completely
mapped, nobody is tempted to change stop_positions to stations, etc. Other
North American rail mappers seem to have appreciated my work doing this,
though I'm open to criticism.

i would say more but you people do not like that.

Say more, as long as your criticism is constructive.
