The issue that I see with Places vs MapMaker is that Map Maker is more big-picture thinking where as the Places forum is solely about dealing with business owners, etc. This isn't a negative, but when you only deal with one aspect then the big picture tends to be lost. Business owners are trying to be #1 (which they should be) but they don't necessarily care how certain behaviors could be used by others with bad intent or even more simply of how their policies/practices fit into the Map and affect its usability (Places malforming physical addresses, etc).Yeah, would love to get his perspective. I like your analogy of the great divide because it's gaps like this that the bad guys like to exploit.
I also saw the latest post on Mike's blog regarding the easing of Google's review filter. Will wait to see your post on that to comment.
