On behalf of other people, I'd like to apologise for that comment.
People on this list, and elsewhere, seem to have  using the word
"vandalism" to describe various types of edit that disagree with their
perception of OSM consensus, rather than the true meaning of
"vandalism" which I don't need to spell out here. That's a lazy habit
and very rude to the recipient.

Best wishes
