Sorry, I wasn't clear. The purpose of the list is to allow people to  
discuss and co-ordinate the creation of good counter-vandalism tools  
internationally, not to be a public flogging place for people who make  
mistakes or indeed who scribble on the map or do worse things.

Vandalism and mistakes are different but need the same tools. If the  
list is focused on creating tools to respond to really bad malicious  
calculated vandalism then it will also provide the tools to recover  
from innocent mistakes as well.

Possibly a different name would be clearer

talk-Counter_vandalism_tools, but that is getting a bit long. Any  
other ideas or feedback?
