I wonder if it is possible to block/disable the user visa-import?

A couple of months ago some if this users imports was discussed om the  
imports mailing list. Mostly, it is automated imports, and much of the  
data imported is of no use to osm-community (highway=* not connected to  
anything, duplicates and triplicates of waters and lakes etc.). Because of  
the duplicates/triplicates, the imports requires a lot of fixing to make  
the map "healthy" again. I have not had much time to look into it, but  
this [1] changeset contains some fixes. Unfortunately, i think even more  
could be deleted but i don't have enough local knowledge to know what is  
real and what might be historical data imported by mistake. Some of the  
data might even be ok....
