You keep ignoring that determined troublemakers can't be forced
to use a single account. Who is determined to creatively
deface user generated content will have no problem solving
many captchas or similar. (And I guess you wouldn't want
to tie accounts to mobile phone numbers or similar.)

Thus, there *is* no one-click way to undo all the changes
of a troublemaker, as they don't come from a single account.

Email spam has a completely different goal. Unlike the WP jerk,
no spammer spams just to annoy/damage people.
