And, frankly, in a rather sloppy manner. You gave no edit summary and
your explanation on the talk page consisted entirely of the acronyms
"WP:RS, WP:NOR." Your subsequent response when I asked for elaboration
was just a slightly more wordy version of the same thing, an assertion
that this is an unreliable source without anything to actually back the
assertion up.

This is a case where I don't care about the subject of the article and
have no basis for an opinion of my own about the external link (I
haven't even watched it), but if you'd been any other editor I would
have simply reverted your change for lack of explanation. I know it's a
hassle, but in the long run I think it's much easier on everyone if a
sound argument is presented so others don't have to keep re-adding and
re-removing this material. It looks like that's been done in the
article's history at least once already.
