If my intellect had been as astute in financial matters as it was gifted in some other areas, I am sure I would enjoying a comfortable, nay, even opulent retirement, and I don't know if I would be spending time in men's clothing fora. However, even I can comprehend this much: You are running the largest men's clothing forum in the world. Now, where is the money today--in ascots, pocket squares, spectator shoes, that sort of stuff, or in T-shirts, hoodies, blue jeans, sneakers and garb of that ilk? If Ask Andy can attract more participants interested in the latter kind of apparel and with the advertising to follow, it could be a friggin' gold mine.
I really hate to think ill of Andy, of whom I am personally very fond and think of as one of the world's genuine nice guys, but this thought has crossed my mind previously. And, frankly, if sacrificing the Ken Pollocks and the Jan Libourels to the Cruisers and Gabba Gouls is going to bring in tens of thousands of dollars in increased ad revenue to the site, I honestly don't know if I would have acted differently under the same circumstances.
Sorry, Andy, if I am traducing you unjustly, but it has been the most plausible hypothesis that has presented itself to me.
