OSM is two things one is a set of technical standards, that's the easy part,
the other is a group of people which is much more difficult.  People can
feel frustrated because their concerns are not being addressed an a solution
is being imposed.

Personally my preference is for an accurate map with lots of detail.
Unfortunately in some parts of the world OSM does not have enough mappers
with enough technical equipment (accurate GPS devices)  or skill to be able
to do this.
