No, we're not. They're the ones who choose to keep revisiting the  
page they made (or, if they're quick learners, put it on their  
watchlist) and they're the ones who go out of their way to protect  
the page as if they owned it. Lots of people make an edit (or an  
article) and then leave it to the rest of us to handle. Some people  
choose to stay and stand guard. That's their choice--we're not  
forcing them to do that.
