1) Try and contact the user, via changeset discussion comments, note 
updates or similar.

if that doesn't work

2) Send an email to data at osmfoundation.org requesting a block.  We can 
send them a message that they have to read before continuing mapping.  
If they've used a throwaway email address of have no idea what OSM is, 
then it'll stop their garbage updates.

Note that (1) actually works in a surprisingly large number of cases 
(not the majority, sure, but enough to be worth trying).  Also - it 
helps if you "be nice" when trying to contact new users, especially when 
they don't know what they're doing.

Best Regards,

Andy (DWG member)
