   In the larger picture, what damage is being done to OSM by the 
'spam', once the correct and standard tags are being used?  I'd like to 
have it clear that it's being reverted on the basis of being a stealth 
import where the origin of the geolocation data is suspect, rather than 
just having more words in the description tag than an average mapper 
would include.

Some local business owners also include that sort of verbage when they 
add their own business.
