That Roy thread was very active and rambunctious, frequently OT and had a lot of members who had disdain for Sufu’s retailer over-friendly (some might say) policies.
I always suspected that some business interest or another that had eyes on Roy pulled strings with some mods to try and change the culture of that thread to something more exploitable.

It's a shame people got all hot and bothered over not getting some fancy pants.
Sure, I was a little disappointed but not enough to go out of my way to complain about about it to anyone.

I wasn't around during the early Roy days, I started out on StyleForum and graduated to sufu a couple years later. I'd be interested to hear about it all.

I'm actually going to see Roy in a few weeks.

Man ... Styleforum... wow,  yea... that place was intense and very proto social media.  I started posting there in college so  It would have been 2005-6 . I am pretty sure i was friends with people from there on myspace if that helps place set the stage even more.

I  had well over 10,000 posts there.  Ermm

But , it ultimately led me towards LVC 47s , I heard about Roy and bought OG Roys instead  so while It was definitely not a great resource for info on heritage /workwear  I   managed to make a ton of good friends there and ultimately ended up here as a result.

I have recently been going through that thread from the beginning again and have always wondered about expurgate-gate as well. Interesting to hear it may have been retailer motivated-seems like all the grumbling about the change from ordering direct is still mostly intact.
