iv only used the default installed vi editor.

so, is someone looking over you shoulder when you go into these sites
laughing at your lack of vi skillz?

It seems to me that any site that has the stock vi installed doesn't
care a thing about vi.  No one that uses it seriously looks at vim (or
any other clone) and says, 

Nah, that's all too complicated, I'll stick with one level undo.
