    Please revert...

    When I look up the dictionary, the word "revert" means "goes back to a previous state", but I always see people using "Please revert comments". Is it a common mistake?

    I wouldn't use it. You can 'take comments back', but not 'revert' them. I don't think it's common- I haven't noticed it.
