[talk-ch] vandalism under the pretense of "simplifying"

You pointed out this argument a few times now. We get it and agree that the communication of these mappers could have been better.

But I would also like to understand your mapping, because until now I (and felt the majority) are in favor of simplifying the forest areas for arguable reasons. That's why I would ask you to answer Sarah's questions so we can see your motivations and procedures as well.

It would also be fair if you would currently wait with further mapping until we have a somewhat clearer opinion about it here.

I hope we can find an objective solution about how detailed forest mapping makes sense. Thank you for your assistance.

For most Westerners, rolling them around the fork is part of the fun, while most Africans overcook the pastas and cut them short. I was served a lot of spaghettis cut in small pieces by my host in Africa. It's not a big deal and always good intentioned but it would certainly start to be problematic if a person with the same good intentions would go to the supermarket and start breaking all the spaghettis "because they should be no more than 3cm long". I think that we are typically dealing with something of that nature. It might be well intentioned but it is an issue.
