Highlighting/reporting incorrect data

I frequently come across PWS where the data is OBVIOUSLY wrong, but there is no way to contact the owner to point out that there is a problem.
For example:-
A PWS in South Wales IPEMBROK6 reporting over 31,000mm of rain for January 2020
A PWS  close to my house which nearly always shows a wind direction 180 deg different to other stations.
A PWS ISWANS15 near the Mumbles in South Wales which managed to record an air pressure 7hpa higher than the official UK 10 year record recorded less than 1 mile away on 19/01/20.

If people are interested in having a weather station, are they not interested in the quality of the data.

AND - Why are Wunderground so unconcerned with the quality of the data. Surely, PWS which are reporting such wildly inaccurate data should be blocked from the map, and the owner informed by email.
