If their edits are factually correct, they are improving OSM which is a
good thing. But they should really engage more with the community so we
can see where all this wisdom is coming from, what they are working
towards and who is behind it. Failure to respond to the many enquiries
does not exactly do anything to help their case.

 Even if this is a botched attempt at legitimate changes, the scale of
