I've read the talk discussion
The licence of the import was discussed
Very little discussion about the use of the import at all.
We have a set of rules or guidelines about importing stuff
and all of them have been violated by this import
not discussed in advance
global import without checking with other parties
licence is doubtful, stated PD but is copied from elsewhere

actual points are off (because they are calculated??) so its as bad as
trying to chase down those rogue BP service stations that were found up
to 33km from home.

I still find "crazy" and "trash" are appropriate.
