Unfortunately, it looks like the self-appointed-authority there (who  
has specifically stated that he feels tertiary sources are more  
appropriate to use than primary ones) has reverted almost all of your  

The good news is that you can click on the article's history tab to  
go back and retrieve any of what you wrote.  I think that parts of  
what you wrote could be worked in (and replace parts of) the existing  
article without him noticing.
