Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Alabama City, AL keeps getting created just Northeast of Princeton, AL. It does not exist. Is it possible to block a user who continues to abuse their privileges?

Thanks! Kaitlyn

Yes, it is possible to block a user (admins can do it), however depending on the situation (could it be an accident, did the mapper do good stuff too?, ...) is should be the last option.

Please see what-should-i-do-about-vandalism. Thank you for your alertness and time.

Looking at the edits there, it appears that the Data Working Group are already involved.
