First of all I am not on your case, but I was concerned that this would 
lead to a flame war on the wiki again through the edit comments.  The 
reason I removed the links is because your last account was banned and 

However, let me apologise for jumping the gun this morning, I was rather 
hoping to prevent either others doing what I had done, but in a rather 
more inflammatory way, or to prevent a flame war.  It would seem that 
the inverse has happened.

So if you want to re-add your links, I will happily revert my change, so 
other people within the docs community, and/or the HTTPD community as a 
whole can decide whether to allow or not allow those links.  Because if 
I recall correctly the consensus was that parts of the material on was misleading or confusing at best. I am unsure if time 
may have changed those opinions, but I am happy to see what happens.

I have CC'd this mail to the docs@ mailing list so that a decision can 
be reached, hopefully with everyones best interests intact.

We would be very happy for you ton contribute to the wiki, but you have 
to accept that these will be reviewed by your peers, and may well be 
edited.  Your htaccess material in the past has not conformed to what is 
considered to be best practice methods and if they are published on the 
wiki they may well be altered.
