Even from bing there is not much activity.

I've taken the opposite approach, I'm still adding to osm from nearmap, 
gps and bing as those edits will go into fosm.org as fosm is doing 
minutely updates from osm.

When we are locked out completely and all my edits are removed from osm 
they will still be in fosm without duplication and I will they start 
adding to fosm then.
