I have deleted these in the past, eg  

I believe that they should be deleted on the principle of Verifiability
"OSM data should, as far as is reasonably possible, be verifiable ...  
a tag/value combination is verifiable if and only if independent users  
when observing the same feature would make the same observation every  

I would support deletion if these conditions were all met:

a) it feels wrong (eg a tag in the middle of a road or an empty field)
b) no address tags in node
c) their website "Contact" does not include a physical address and
d) no reply to changeset comments

And as Warin says: Remember this may be their first contact with and  
mapping in OSM ... go easy.
