Vedran V has reported that user to OSM-HR community after getting no 
reply from that user on direct OSM web messages. He started fixing 
inaccurate mapping that user continued to map. In last 30 days he 
reported that user for vandalism because of false landuse edits, and 
other mess.

That is what Vedran V told us publicly on our Facebook group, on more 
than one occasion.

I trust Vedran V more than Venko, because Vedran V and few of us went 
together to Faculty of Geodesy and are educated in the field of GIS and 
surveying, and because he communicates with the rest of community.

I would like to hear Venko side of the story if he ever replies.

Regards, Hrvoje
