Many wikis, however, make it hard to undo more than one change to a page.
That is, the standard model says you can edit the previous version, but not
the one before that. So people can change something, then change it again.

Note that changing the textual representation of the rules is not the same
as changing the rules themselves. It is just a way for evil beings to cause
massive confusion.
