I've made some edits to Leafcutter ant. I take it that this is an area of interest for you - would you mind checking to see if you agree with what I have added?

Hello ASJ / Kalimantan,

I am writing in regards to the Leafcutter article on Wikipedia in the hope that you will reconsider your removal of some text.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that you are removing this text because it is a derivative of text that you added in May and I understand that you are upset because your web-page has been de-linked from the article.

The reason it was removed was because it is restrictive in only allowing some users to view the content. It is your site and you have every right to restrict entry to it as you wish. It would have been a great site to link to apart from this reason, as it appears to be comprehensive and has much information that would be of value to the article on Wikipedia.

Likewise, your contributions to the article were excellent and made a big difference to the quality and quantum of information in the article.

It is unfortunate that you feel that you have to withdraw from WP due to the removal of this link. Please understand that it was not a personal attack on yourself.

I personally use Firefox on my personal computers, but I am forced to use IE on machines that are not my own. I am sure that there are many who use Wikipedia and are in this situation, and I do not believe that it is within the spirit of Wikipedia to allow only those who choose to use a particular type of browser to access information.

In short, I would like to invite you back to Wikipedia as I believe you can add a lot to the articles on Leafcutters. I would also appreciate it if you would revert your removal of the information already released to Wikipedia.
