It has nothing at all to do with me ripping off Google Maps.  And
regardless of the *reason* the contributions are deleted, the *impact*
is going to be the same.

Bottom line, due to the board's utter lack of comprehension with
regard to copyright law, they have deemed it necessary to decimate the
map.  That's true of the ODbL switch, and that's true of the deletion
of my contributions.
