[HOT] Broken (multi)polygon cleanup

<http://area.jochentopf.com/fixing.html#spikes-buildings>I looked at one of
the issues flagged (e.g. http://maproulette.org/map/2498/2186222) and don't
really understand what the "spike" problem is. Are there examples of how to
identify the issue? Are these issues only fixable in JOSM or can one use ID?
