[talk-ch] vandalism under the pretense of "simplifying"

 I'm not sure this is an "attack" .. in the case cited, I find the simplified version not that much worse. How many nodes do we want in an object? 10 per meter? 10'000? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, of course, and I as well prefer a somewhat nicely rounded road than a triangle etc .. but it's not very clear where too much becomes too much. Extreme detail doesn't necessarily provide a better rendered image or more information and could just lead to overloaded mobile devices. But I have no idea where the ideal nodecount should be.

 A user is destroying precise landuse mapping in Wallis. "Simplifying" in this case turns precise landuse cover into weird angles and destroys the work done by the previous contributors while harming the OSM database. Such moves could furthermore clearly be perceived as aggressive. Typical examples of the vandalism can be observed there https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/965324922/history#map=19/46.02973/7.11287
What is the appropriate way to react to such attacks against the project? _______________________________________________
