Is this happening often these days?

There were many instances in the past where 'new mappers' were tiding up their 
local area based on the 'macro' view of things, but in general we have got past 
that now haven't we?

Dave's original post was about a user who was doing this to his work, and as far 
as I am concerned the offending user needed to be handled as a 'vandal' !

Much of the discussion on the thread drifted off from the original question, 
although a general consensus on perhaps starting with the macro view and then 
creating fine detail later by pulling things apart seemed to be agreed. I've 
found a nice shortcut (G) in josm that certainly helps with that, but anybody 
reverting such additional data simply needs blocking until such time that they 
do accept it is vandalism?
