De-sandbox is when I'm fixing something that someone may have broken  
unintentionnaly, while trying the wiki features.

Despam is when it is an edit inserting spam (unrelated external links)  
and/or looks like a "bot" (an automated program making edits on open wikis).

I tend to assume good faith when there is doubt, probably that's why you see  
de-sandbox more often. :-)
