Doesn't exist! (Although I could create it to ask them if they're real?)

or via comment on vote page?

Both cases I'm talking about, other people (not me!) asked them questions
or made a comment in reply, but no response.

That's what it should be, with the same login working for both, as well as
any mailing-list you want to join.

You mean for each person, or a "membership list" that has everybody's
details on it?

Ideally the same account would work for both OSM mapping and

Maybe a campaign to ask everybody to create their Users page, including a
link to their OSM page, then after "6" months of warning, stop counting
votes made by "anonymous" users? (Which I know will go over like the
proverbial lead balloon!)
