I don't actually know the 'set in stone', 'this is what constitutes an edit war' criteria, so I apologise if I encouraged it to continue. Taking a quick look at the edit history, though, the user stated 'feel free to remove if it doesn't fit'.
Yes, I can remove images and formatting in different edits. I don't like doing that though, because it a) takes longer and b) gives me extra edits that I'm not actually really doing, you know? And if I did it like that from the get-go, I have no doubts I would have been accused of badge-editing/achievement-farming/whatever you call it. I can do it, of course, but I just don't want to get into trouble.
