Hi everyone, 

Just wanted to give you a quick heads-up... Since 8th March user
cityeditor1000 (see [1]) has been active (77 changesets in just a couple
of days) in several areas across the globe, including India, North Wales
and various parts of the USA. 

I can't easily judge the validity of the edits in many cases, but in
North Wales I can see that several admin boundaries have become broken
(see [2]) and it is going to take a little while to sort out. 

I don't wish to cause offence... Perhaps someone more tactful than me
would consider contacting the user to advise caution? 

By the way, it seems that this user is using the iD editor... Is there
any chance that the user simply doesn't realise what is happening? Is
the editor possibly causing the relations to break?
