Edit warring and vandalism

Edit warring is not the same as vandalism. (Both, however, are bad.) The latter requires only a virtual can of spray paint, while the former takes two to tango.

Please don't take the sysop mantle upon yourself as you did with User:Willibrord.[1] Thanks. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 14:47, February 16, 2009 (UTC)

I am used to wikipedia where editing warring is vandalism. Also under wikipedia guidelines an edit-warring editor needs to be warned by the other editor of edit-warring before being referred to a sysop. I hope you have mentioned to Fr Benjamin that his offensive comments are unwarranted. They are untrue, warlike, and unChristian. I do not promote the Sarum Missal at all. The photos were offered following on from conversations on the talk page of some months ago, and related directly to the missal mentioned in the text. I do not have any axe to grind in this matter. It is Fr Benjamin who obviously has a bee in his bonnet about it and wants to censor photographs which simply tell their own story without being pro or contra the issue.

1. This is not Wikipedia. Wikipedia rules do not apply here.
2. Even on Wikipedia, however, vandalism is distinguished from edit-warring (the same goes for OrthodoxWiki). The former is a deliberate attempt to disrupt the wiki, while the latter consists of a back-and-forth set of reversions (which may well be for the sake of vandalism, but are usually instead over a content dispute). Both are bad. Vandalism is not a synonym on the wiki for bad. It is a particular type of bad.
3. I don't pretend to understand what the heck your scuffle with Fr. Benjamin is really all about, but I will note that you removed another photograph when adding your own. Perhaps room can be made for all of them in relevant contexts.
