No, but in practice that's not a huge problem: revisions can be undone quite
easily. The strength of the wiki is the ability to collaborate, and while we
might not agree with someone who edits our work, that's the whole idea:
other people get to edit what you contribute. If you want complete control
over what you write, you don't need a wiki and it's not the right choice.
