Vandalism

I've found a page that has been obviously vandalized. What should I do? 
You can always call the article to an Admin's attention, by leaving a note on this page, especially if you have some doubts. But, if its obviously vandalism, Be Bold and revert it yourself. Click on the history tab and locate the last edit made before the vandal struck. Click on the time/date link before the good editor's name, which will open up the last clean version of the article. Click on the edit tab, write "revert:" (or just rv:) and a reason why into the summary field. Save the page and you've now corrected the vandalism. Thanks!
