I had a case like this in Belgium as well, today. Someone that 
apparently was screwing around in live editing mode, not realising that 
all changes were being uploaded.

The old Potlatch, before the Edit with save mode was added, asked very 
specifically if you wanted to be playing around to test, or be serious 
and edit. The current Edit with save vs Edit live modes make no real 
sense to a beginner, not in the way the old dialog conveyed that meaning.
