The person that took the link down had two reasons for doing it.
 * We are centering on promoting distros that ship KDE 4 
 * The link was broken

I don't see any problem, the link was taken down because it pointed to an 
unexisting page, now you provided a working one and we are pointing there, end 
of story. If you feel mepis developers/users think we are doing things against 
them please tell them to contact us and they'll see that's not true.
