How to get an "importer"'s attention

There’s a user whose bulk landuse import blew away edits I had made over a year prior in this area as a new subdivision was being built out. I had carefully added features like new retention ponds and the revised woodland boundary and some other details, and this bulk blast not only overlaid old data that is now wrong, it blew away my objects completely. The changeset comment doesn’t make sense. I have tried to contact the user twice via OSM, and it refuses to answer.

I have my old changeset XML, but no tool ready at hand to upload a correction to put the present real on-the-ground features back. The import probably screwed up a lot of other things too, but I haven’t really sought it out. How do I get the user in question to actually acknowledge the mistake, if not perhaps actually fix it?
