What are “Community Wiki” posts?

I didn't understand the community wiki at first. So I checked it for all my answers. Is there any way to undo it? And there should be an explanation (tooltip?) under it.

Community Wiki is permanent and irrevocable.

The tooltip when you hover your mouse over the checkbox is also fairly self-explanatory:

alt text

Community owned posts do not generate any reputation for the owner, have a lower reputation barrier for collaborative editing, and show only a revision history instead of a signature block.
