absolutely true, and i guess it's a consequence of the direction the place has gone in as a e-content provider but what's the alternative ? without adapting and bringing in hoards of new members to help boost certain metrics, it would flounder into the dark abyss like so many other forum and be irrelevant in 2015. so i'd rather have this commercialized playground than nothing at all. so i'd like to thank fok et al for forward thinking
although i have totally lost motivation to share good finds because over 50% of the time it ends up being flipped for profit by some opportunistic hyenas so yeah that sucks. so as to not be totally irrelevant: farfetch has a free shipping promo through today and there's a yoox code for 20% off that goes until may can be used 3X though i'm not sure if linked to account or not...?
Ya, I picked some rare stuff for some people a few yrs ago at bottom prices and I saw items for sale on sufu. Now unless you actually know me and I feel like it I certainly don't do it.
As for the forum yeah there is a very good stewardship, although the direction it goes is mainly out of the control of the moderators/owners. This might be less the case now that the site is "mature". Anyway back to online sales.
