We asked Jervis about this at GDUK last year, and the answer was typical: GW have a big file on all SM stuff and it does have info on genitals in it, but they won't say one way or the other what that is and they also reserve the right to change their mind on it...

So the only source we have is the old fluff which states that it was removed.

I don't really dislike them. My chapter is not fond of them for their devotion to the codex, but personally marines are marines.

The answer is obvious. They're a band of heretical deviants in league with the Eldar, who let them use their webway gates. That means they'll all be purged in 6th edition.

We can always dream. :p

i think its because they have nothing unique theyre just marines i mean take the space wolves(one of my favorite chapters) their heightened senses that stands them out and the salamanders ( my favorite obviously i mean look at my name) they have a demonic appearance by being black and having eyes that are seemingly on fire but the ultras are just disgustingly normal no offense ultra lovers

What fluff says they have their genitalia cut off?
I don't think I've ever read that anywhere.

They show up in most major battles on the Eastern Fringe because that's where Ultramar is, but other than the 2nd War for Armageddon the Ultramarines have had very little presence in the major wars else where in the Galaxy.

They're never shown losing. Ever. That, and Games Worksop (sic) doesn't mention Traitor Marines.

Two small irritants, not much on their own, but when added to everything else adds up to "kill the bluies".

I wonder if a poll was taken in the US about how many people collect Ultramarines...you know the getting involved in everything else to help with preserving their own interests I jest, I jest.

this was in reply to people bitching about the teaser trailer for Ultramaries, but a few points can still stand here:

As already mentioned, the Ultramarines hold the greatest network of Successors, and hold a substantial section of Imperial territory, so it might refer to their size and influence. Or maybe, as they are a Greek/Roman-motif Chapter, it refers to their 'noble and lofty character'.
but yeah they get a bit carried away in the fanbase, which creates a 'hate' towards them, if it had been Salamanders as the posterboys from the start we'd be in a same case scenario but with the Sallies
