Seriously, I don't see any inflammatory comments posted here recently.
This thread has recently just been a source of jokes about shit and the odd reposting of his special offers with people saying they wouldn't buy. Replace "nice but pricey" with "shit" and that's basically the same as the Rapha thread.
The fact is this is part of the historic record, and it shouldn't be censored. But it should be fairly obvious to people that his business has changed in the last five years...
If he's missed out on investment because an investor saw this thread and decided not to invest, that is the investors choice.
As I've mentioned before, if this thread is damaging the brand irrevocably, then he should rebrand, not ask us to censer what did happen.
