Vandalism like this is capped at 5/day to limit the damage. –  Mysticial Apr 3 '13 at 19:39

Looks like they're oscillating. –  Asad Apr 3 '13 at 19:40

@Asad nice, another one in the oscillation club! ;) For the record this case is different, it's frustrated user who most likely got question banned and decided to rage quit. –  Shadow Wizard Apr 4 '13 at 7:34

Any time you ever see a post that is vandalized you can flag it and let a mod deal with the post. In some cases, if it doesn't appear to be malicious or widespread, you might roll it back once, but if it is ever applied a second time you should always flag rather than getting in an edit war.

The mod will be able to determine what the final state of the post should be, they can lock the post if they feel that it's needed to prevent further editing, and they can take any further actions they deem necessary against the user for vandalizing the post.
