How to report significant indexing issues / Who's auditing?

I am upset to find that the indexing - and thus search results - for one particular New York Passenger arrival manifest has been significantly changed, which has introduced major errors.

This does not appear to be the result of personal updates: the port of departure was changed for every line on the page, AND all the records for 2/3 of the 2nd page are offset (up) by one line.

Index data WAS CORRECT, but is now all screwed-up. Is there a formal channel by which to report this, and get it corrected?

Details: SS Homeric, Arrived NY, NY, Aug 17, 1922 from Southampton, England. Images 53 / 54 show these problems below line 6. Image 51 also has incorrect port of departure.

Example: Line 7: Schmidt, Kurt...POD: Cherbourg, S/B Southampton...city of birth (image) Dobeln; (index) morneburg - also mis-keyed, S/B Horneburg.

Please advise how to get this corrected. "Add Update" is not available for all these fields. (so how did they get changed?)
