What to do when a patron is completely changing names, dates etc. on profiles?
For example-(fake names) changing a name from Robert Smith to Walter Black.
Earlier this week I kept finding profiles where a certain patron had completely changed the names, dates, and locations of people. All of the sources stayed the same. I spent several hours going back and making corrections (restoring as much as I could) but see that the person has gone back and has changed some of the information again. I don't even know how many profiles they did this to-but I worked on quite a few.
Here is an example I was able to pull up:
Sir William Bardolph 4th Baron Bardolf L1SG-35D
Looking at the change history you can see that on August 19th a patron started making changes-names, dates, places, photos, etc. The profile's name was changed to Edmund Mortimer then I corrected it. It was then changed to Roger Mortimer and then to Edmund Mortimer before I corrected it again back to the correct name of William Bardolph.
I have a feeling that so many profiles have been corrupted by what this user is doing.
I have not reported this is abuse because in the past when I did so for a similar situation I was told it was not abuse.
Here are a few other examples:
Robert d'Aguillon LH7F-PQ9 was changed to Piers de Geneville
William de Ferrers L8PJ-FJ6 was changed to Hugh XII Of Lusignan
