Incase you havent learnt, the moderation is there to stop anyone else
drowning out SteveC on the list.

In one foul swoop, Richard has destroyed my interest in OSM.. 5 years of
mapping contributions, code contributions, discussion contributions, and
we get treated like this.  I have deleted all my accounts, all my
subscriptions, and am in the process of deleting 12 months of GPX traces
and OSM files that Ive built up from my round-australia travels, mostly
on highways which have never been mapped, and wont be mapped unless
someone else takes the week-long roadtrip.

Some non aussies came onto the aussie list and stirred up a few big
arguments, so you ban the aussies, rather than the international pests.
What you should have done, was blocked everyone non-aussie from the
list, or at least bothered to look at the history (or ask ANYONE) who
uses the list.  Then, when a few people criticized him for his decision,
he disappears.

Seriously Richard, I hope you burn in hell for the destruction youve
caused and continue to cause to the OSM project.
