Let's get this completely fair, and remove all the work of others who
have been caught tracing from Google, admitted it when challenged, and
only the work which was challenged has been removed. Work which may
also be traced from Google because it also was a long way from the
person's home, and not been specifically challenged, is still there in
the OSM database.
