"Fixing" stuff is always wrong if it deletes good data.

Someone who carefully fixes stuff will look at the details and make sure
they do not delete potentially useful data.

Someone who simply replaces all X tags to Y without looking at the
individual case is making an automated edit that should be reverted;
either by the user themselves after you point it out to them, or by a
concerned members of the community, or by DWG (data at osmfoundation.org)
if the user is uncooperative.
