Yes, indeed... I should have stated more correctly:

Now I've noticed that vreimer has caused a problem with Lesser Slave Lake...

In an opensource project like OSM, many hands make light work, but
those hands need to be adding to the quality of the product, not just

vreimer is indeed prolific, but at the same time seems to be
introducing quite a bit of less than stellar quality information.

It would be in everyone's best interest to steer this individual
towards more helpful editing of the OSM data.

It just gets frustrating when you find data that was previously
accurately representing the real world has been rendered less than
perfect, and that almost all of these edits all have the same username
associated with them.
