i've had to remove several things which were traced and tagged from OS
which are no longer present. for example; [1], which was demolished in
2007 (and deconsecrated some time previously).

it's not the use of OS data which is the problem, it's using it in
areas of which there's no recent local knowledge and, pretty much by
definition, any bot would have no local knowledge ;-)
