Earning trust as Newbie

WhoDidIt is broken, it does not show changes by new users - otherwise, perhaps I would have noticed. A users added hundreds of - in my opinion - worthless PoIs to the data - lots of home addresses of crafts people, lots of outdated stuff : cafes that closed 15 year ago.

In the process they deleted dozens of churches, chapels and buildings where tourist accommodation was on offer. A local pointed out to them, that the information was outdated. The local corrected the wrongs. The excuse they gave translated: “I will forward your complaints. I just receive data from some company and map that, so don’t blame me” is a double lie. 1) They just went on with their thing. 2) OSM-Contributors act on their own - unless at gunpoint?
