Hi,

Some updates on this case.  The OSM-PH community and others have
reverted many of the changes made by this user (details is tracked in
this ticket [0] ). For older edits we cannot do a full revert since
many were probably touched by other users already, so we are doing
manual reviews. In addition to the listed user accounts, we noticed a
new user account of similar behavior [1].  We added them in the list
and we have reverted most this user's edits already.

We feel this person won't stop unless we revert edits right away.
