  Seems like you're not reading anything, only writing a LOT.

  It has been repeated numerous times that tagging list/wiki is not
authoritative and most importantly - not representative. Miniscule
group of wiki/tagging people declaring themselves "approvers" is
ridiculous. In the same way you can declare yourself Kings, Queens,
Popes or whatever, but it will not matter to anyone else but you. So
all your "approvals" is only between you - small group of people, not
between OSM community - hundreds of thousands of OSM'ers - who do not
care not only participating, but even reading what you write.
