The Changeset: 85357849 comment is "multipolygons for the entire river 
offer no tangible advantages and not to be used."

Sorry but I don't think that is a great comment.
Is there any advantage in what you did?
If so, what did you do and what are the advantages?

People ask questions whey they don't understand.

Explain your edits better in the change set comments, it helps others 
understand what is being done, why it is being done and the source of 
the information. I note that there is no source given ... is that a 
'feature' of iD? In JOSM there is a source statement for each change 
set, if it is there ... use it.

If they understand but disagree then discussion should take place. Don't 
take it personally, most are here to help make the map better.
