[Talk-us] "Screw-up" of borders

         I read on the Talk US forum that I have made a mistake on a 
state boundary near Four Corners. Specifically, you said I had 
"screwed up" the border. It would have been helpful if you had 
contacted me directly and worked with me to fix that mistake. I wish 
you had given me the courtesy that you apparently gave ToeBee in 
trying to work with him to change the mistake.
         To my knowledge, I have made no changes to the state borders 
in the Four Corners area, though I have worked on many roads in that 
area. What was the date of the change, and how large was the error? 
You did not provide specific information in your posting.
         Also, before you post publicly that someone in OSM has 
"screwed up," I think that, at the least, you should discuss the 
situation with that person off-list. Using terms, such as "screwed 
up," is not helpful to our mutual effort of creating an open-source 
map of the world. I'm sure we all are trying to do our best and 
welcome feedback about mistakes, if it is given in a helpful and 
positive manner. I hope you will keep that in mind for the future.
