[talk-au] Tragedy of the commons...

Once upon a time it used to be almost a race to map out new areas from
Nearmap coverage, now whole areas of coverage go untouched for months
or longer...

What was once a source of pride in the community can now only be
described as a 'tragedy of the commons' now that the death knell is
being tolled on the OSM-F...

I have restarted mapping in earnest, but uploading to fosm.org, I'd
forgotten how enjoyable it was just to get on and map large areas that
are blank and to make the map slightly more complete, knowing that I
wasn't wasting my time to only have my edits reverted later.

On a more amusing note, I'm sure there is a spoof song in 'What a crying shame'

Anyone know where to email Weird Al? :)
