I'm getting frustrated. I see many questions like this one from someone who appears to
- be a programmer (and thus presumably quite technically able)
- know enough "to be dangerous" (in this case he knows about affine and polynomial transformations)
- know nothing about (or doesn't appear to wish to discuss) map projections (the real issue in this case)
and thus asks the wrong question or a very confusing one. We all want to help but it is often very difficult to get to the real issue. We can dance around the exact question asked, slowly teasing out extra information to help us answer the real problem, but this is a lot of work. Not wishing to come across as unfriendly or unaccommodating, do either of these sound like the beginnings of a reasonable standard comment?
You appear not to know enough about GIS to ask a clear question. We suggest you study more about geodesy/cartography/GIS [insert appropriate topic] before re-wording the question.

Maybe we already have such a mechanism within our flagging/closing system?
Maybe the situation doesn't bother anyone else?
