Just to add one more comment to what has been a very useful thread
discussing the options available:
At no time did anyone see fit to actually try and get in touch with the
user who made these edits explaining what OSM is and trying to win them
over from "mapping for Pokemon" to mapping things that actually exist.
Surely that's got to be worth a try, rather than proposing (as some have
here) some sort of "technical solution"? A quick scan of
http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-discussions suggests that there are
quite a lot of people doing exactly that - lots of "Bonjour bienvenue
sur OpenStreetMap" there. I know that it's frustrating writing that
over and over again, but there have certainly been examples on talk-us
and the reddit threads of people who have "crossed over".
