The discussion in Jeff's The Great Edit Wars suggests SO has seen some edit/rollback-warring, and Jeff mentioned Wikipedia's Lamest Edit Wars list.

I've actually not encountered any edit warring, but maybe a list of our experiences is useful data about what to avoid. Are there any good candidates? Or are we better off not showcasing this material?

I'd say that stackoverflow.com/posts/3530902/revisions is even lamer than the Matlab one... But hey, that's how I got three badges and 300+ rep, so I'm not complaining – Yi Jiang Aug 27 '10 at 13:03

This was pretty lame (PS: Andreas would be me and it was partly (at the very least) my fault.. I apologize I had a bad day)

-1 for the cocky attitude in that thread and getting into a rollback war against 3 users. – perbert Apr 12 '10 at 12:44
@json this is a discussion about "report the lamest edit wars". Are we going to downvote all of self reports? In my opinion, if you downvote something in a "lamest" context, it's almost saying that you disagree that it's lame, no ? ;) – Gnoupi Apr 12 '10 at 13:14
I say +1 for owning up to it and apologizing, and yes it was lame. (Though I'm generally in favor of excising the homework tag anyway. That said, I wouldn't go to war over it. :) – John Rudy Apr 12 '10 at 13:28
Sounds interesting. I guess the thread was deleted? – Charles Stewart Apr 14 '10 at 8:31
