Is it the right of every administrator to second-guess

The culture of feeling entitled to instantly revert, though, is quite
Exactly right. Some admins have adopted a definition of "wheel
warring" that excludes the first revert of an admin action -- so that
if X blocks, and Y unblocks, Y is not wheel warring. But if X restores
the block, X has started the wheel war. This is nonsense. The first
person to undo the original admin action has started the wheel war,
and it's that first undoing that shouldn't be happening as a rule.
