Then how should I tag a quarry in which stone extraction has ceased, as
mentioned in my other post?

Presumably not with a landuse tag? But that seems to be the only
existing tag for a quarry? Maybe man_made=quarry? 

I have the same problem in mapping old tin workings, currently tagged
with landuse=surface_mining and disused as the only possible documented
tags. So how do I avoid being one of your trolls, preferably while still
getting the major features in an area rendered?

Yes, I do also use the historic tag as well, where appropriate, but that
has even less chance of a proper render on standard maps.
