It is for someone being in the superuser list, he may revert all edits
of some specific user / ip with a few clicks.

BadContent is regularly pulled from the MoinMaster wiki. If some text to
be saved matches a pattern on BadContent, the save will be rejected.

LocalBadContent is for you, to add local patterns that are not
appropriate on a list that is globally distributed. E.g. if you have no
legitimate chinese content, you can just add some chinese chars to get
rid of the chinese spammers.
