Two projects Volunteer Project and USCensusProject.
I raised "Cain" with the ones hidden behind these two so called projects. Turned out 1 or 2 persons, that is all. And even worse, they made toooooo many errors in my lines. Told them in no uncertain ways, they can hide behind the aliases like that since both were not the recognized projects. They do NOT do complete research before adding.
@W D Samuelsen contact me please
Neither of these projects you mentioned is relevant to this thread, except for one offhand comment by @Áine Ní Donnghaile that "The work is reminiscent of the Census Project." I share some of your concerns about the census project users, but this thread is talking about individual users who are not hiding behind a generic project username.
I'm any case, please note that the Volunteer Project is nothing like the census project users. The Volunteer Project is an official project of FamilySearch, and has a very limited purpose: to standardized places for events that have no standards, while leaving the entered text untouched. It represents many thousands of users.
The Volunteer Project I kept running into - has ZERO to do with place names. It did not have "The" in the name.
BTW, some of those place standards are so way off and some so brazen wrong that I had to report the errors to the Places quite a number of times.
Well, something doesn't add up. The user with the precise name "Volunteer Project" is definitely a special FamilySearch user as I have described. If you look at the last change to the death for KLBR-76H, you'll see that it was made by that special user (clearly it's a special user since it can't be clicked on to send a chat).
So you must be confusing this special user with some other regular user.
