I'm balrog-kun, if you see my data in the US you can add odbl=clean*
because I haven't used any non-ODbL sources outside of Europe.  But I
have used such sources in Europe and so (Richard Weait says..) this is
not compatible with CT 1.2.4.  This is not the main reason I have
declined CT, but in any case all of my own work is ODbL compatible and
me saying that probably has more legal value than a half-automatic
click-through.. well, unless I'm not balrog-kun, but then I couldn't
have put it on the user page.

I'm not in Oregon these days which is why no new data is appearing from me.

Cheers

* provided other authors in the history also license their
contributions ODbL, which old LWG minutes say is *not* implied by CT
acceptance.
