Thanks for pointing me to it! I commented there about two cases where Mapbox itself is
using OSM data without attribution.
Hopefully this time I will get an useful reply from Mapbox (so far I tried contacting support
but I got no useful reply since 24th January) - though after 4 years author of diary entry
may no longer work at Mapbox.
If anyone has idea how to contact somebody at Mapbox who is able to fix missing
attributions in Mapbox examples/docs - let me know.
