It seems you are right. Revert does not revert a name change. I think
that is a bug in ZWiki. You have to use 'rename' to change the name

I think they require as a minimum that users to identify themselves.
That stops 90% of the spam.

I agree that spam is becoming a bit of a problem here.

Ok, I have enabled the 'edits_need_username' option on Axiom Wiki.
That should help the spam problem.
