This isn't any point of view, that's me summing up the discussion.

Nobody discussing here said "it's good data but it doesn't belong to
OSM" but all the discussion is about whether it is correct data or data
added correctly (in whatever posters sense of correct). I just felt that
more or less implying that opposing the mapping of sidewalks as parallel
footways is close to vandalism (deleting correct data) is quite harsh
and far fetched. That's how I understood the part I quoted from emga and
that's why I thought the point of the discussion had been missed.
