Exactly right. Some admins have adopted a definition
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.
How's this for a definition:
If X disagrees with Y's unblock, then Y has wheel warred. If X
reinstates the block, then X has wheel warred too.
This covers the situation where X makes a mistake and Y fixes it - X
agrees with the mistake, and no damage is caused. If Y fears that X
may accuse him of wheel warring, he shouldn't be undoing X's actions.
(or should be prepared for the consequences)
