Hi Maning,

I've also noticed and reverted a couple of Zowie Polie's changes. It
doesn't seem like they're responding to blocks or changeset comments,

I did notice that some of the stuff they're deleting is only visible in
newer imagery. I wonder if they're looking at older imagery and deleting
stuff that doesn't look like it's there? Either way, I'd suggest reverts
for the changesets that consisted mostly of deletes.
