And on October 14, Anthony removed that bicycle shop, and it has been 
removed ever since.

On October 19, Anthony created two nodes, 535406826 and 535416420, both 
for this same bicycle shop. These have been affected by the reversion 
because by working the way he did, Anthony severed the history ties to 
your original version. Had he simply added to your node, instead of 
deleting and re-creating it, then a clean reversal would have been possible.

I apologise if this has already been said elsewhere in this thread; I'm 
only skimming messages.
