Temporary block has been applied by DWG to affected accounts. Looking
forward to hear back from at least one of them.

DWG is requesting for feedback, and that we raise the following concerns:
* data privacy protection (family names, and information like number of
household members (including children) that they've been posting)
* quality of the building geometry
* wiki page for their project

> Hi everyone,
> Over the last couple of days we noticed several mappers in Lupang
> Arenda Taytay/Cainta are adding names of residents on buildings.
> We have been reviewing and fixing a lot of theses edits [0].  I
> believe Erwin also added comments in some changesets.
> We are not sure what is the purpose of these edits, our hunch is that
> the data is being used for a community based land tenure project.
> While using OSM for land rights is a commendable endeavor, private
> information such as names of residents should not be in OSM.
> We are requesting the Data Working Group to redact these data ASAP.
> If anyone knows about this initiative, we would love to talk to the
> organizers so that we can help them how to use OSM without
> compromising privacy.
