All you can do us try to contact the user and clean the map up meantime. As a mapper I appreciate been contacted to improve my work.   Generally active mappers will respond to contact but to many the internal email system of OSM is mystery to them. 

I tried contacting a few but most do not respond.

These have been made by the user goldfishxyz, I have tried to contact this user directly via the openstreetmap messaging system, but have not had a response (the user is still creating more errorneous edits).
