What happened to the "How to Setup a Basic IP Tables Configuration on Centos 6" tutorial?

I thought it was a pretty decent article and have used it as a baseline for securing my servers. I’ve added and changed things that are specific to my server, but overall thought it was a great tutorial to teach a Linux hobbiest like me the direction to go in.

Was it removed for any specific reason? If there was an issue with it (security wise) I’d like to know.
