Subject New Chain for : Does Cassandra use vector clocks

Apologies : For some reason my response on the original mail keeps bouncing
back, thus this new one!

Sorry, but I am confused by that entire thread!

1. Does Cassandra implement any kind of data locking - at any granularity
whether it be row/colF/Col ?
2. If the answer to 1 above is NO! - how does CL ALL prevent conflicts.
Concurrent updates on exactly the same piece of data on different nodes can
still mess each other up, right ?
