I'm not much worried about "take all of those out", it's easy to spot
and put back the previous revision. What's more insidious is if some
small things are changed (wrong facts, allusions, even typos added),
those can take longer to spot and then you have to merge the original
page and the correct modifications which took place after the
problematic user came in.
