It is the usual thing for wikis that users create their own accounts.

Having an account gives a user no rights at all - except if YOU tell 
moin to do in the configuration (by using ACLs with Known/All:read,write).
If you don't want that, just don't do that and specify more specific 
rights - e,g. "EditorGroup:read,write All:read" - then only people in 
EditorGroup will be able to edit.

BTW: moin's default ACLs are of course wiki-like, so if you don't 
specify any ACLs in your config, it will use the rather open defaults.
