We can not harass them, but still assert that doing so is wrong, can't we?

Step one is to figure out what we want the data to look like.
Figuring out how to get the data to look that way is step two.

The problem with the landuse tag is it's being used for multiple
things.  On one hand, it's being used to describe what the land is
being used for - if people are using the land as their residence, the
land is tagged landuse=residential.  On the other hand, it's being
used to describe what sorts of things are present on the land - if
there are lots of trees, it's being tagged landuse=forest.

What happens when there's a section of forest which people are using
as their residence?
