Pet Peeve #1

I have a couple of clients that seem to not understand the definition of the word "revert". Here is a typical sentence how they would use it:

Please would you create a new user account, please revert once done.

Seriously? As a scientist / engineer I am very confused by the need to expend energy for a net result of nothing. If I create a new account, but then revert it once done, I have not done anything, have I?
