spectrokid writes: I have been playing with Google Mapmaker for a while now. Now I see that additions I have made were approved, published,... only to disappear again 2-3 weeks later. When route-planning my cycle trip to work, Google insists I should take an expressway which would not only be illegal but also pretty suicidal.

What are your experiences with Googles latest addition of crowd-sourcing?
