    Hey Nicole,
    I just noticed that your “image of an image” was removed from the Wikipedia article. I found this line in the history page:

    04:14, 3 March 2011 Cybercobra (talk | contribs) (4,624 bytes) (I don’t think the placeholder adds much or that the dict def merits primary placement)

    You can check it here
    Moreover, there seems to be a new image there since yours was removed.
    What is your take on this?

      Hi Mushon, Yes, I spotted that!!!! Funny when you read behind the scenes, the wiki-police governing what is ok, and not…. Its even funnier that it appears to be a wholey undemocratic process. 1 vote / voice… – boom! Ah, well, it was fun while there. Thanks for the heads up. I hope your project is going well. I see some nice new illustration are up. Keep up the good work.

      Best, Nicole
