Actually, that's not true. The permanent damage is the loss of time.
When I spend a minute bringing up an article, looking at a diff,
checking history and contribs to see if there is more, that's a
minute that I'm not adding facts or checking them, and that minute
is gone forever.

Volunteers' time is our most precious resource - don't throw it
away so casually.
