[OSM-talk] Way to delete buildings added by specific user, or help reverting?

Your concern is?  If I look in JOSM at the link you supplied the buildings
are approximately the right size and where buildings are in the imagery.

Their orientation could be better.

However they aren't duplicates, and compared to many buildings mapped
they're almost reasonable and the mapper isn't that inexperienced.

If you're local fine raise the issue but otherwise I'm not seeing a major
problem, still having said that I do understand some people do have
concerns about mapping buildings and importing them.

You can use JOSM to pick them out and correct them by the way.  If you
download the country off line then split it up into chunks JOSM works quite
well.  Cleaning up buildings is quite a chunk of work by the way.
