I think I remember Eric (ebwolf: owner of said changeset) mentioning
something about a bulk upload a few weeks ago. I bet he'll respond to your
OSM message if he doesn't see this thread.

So I was happily tracing a lake last night when I noticed a bunch of
completely unconnected nodes with no tags in the area. I mentioned it
on IRC and came up with a couple of JOSM filters to weed them out and
ended up deleting over 2,000 of them around the lake.

Looking at them last night I didn't see a pattern but I must have been
too tired or something. Today I went back and looked at more of the
area and noticed that they are all from the same changeset and it
looks to be a bad one:

It has 30,000 nodes... and that's it. No ways, no relations and a
pretty worthless changeset comment. I guess I will probably send the
user a message asking what he was thinking but I'm guessing this is a
prime candidate for a changeset revert?
