Exactly.

@ the OP. I have read the books, and they are quite good, Courage and Honour was quite bad actually but that's one out of about 6. I've seen far too much love for that army and not enough for others that could do with it, that I couldn't like Ultramarines if I tried.

I have nothing against the ultramarines they have good fluff books and they are a good army

I don't hate them so much as i've seen enough of them. During Second ed every time you turned around a boxed set was being released with the boys in blue all over it. It's more like i see them as Gw's advertising chapter. Nothing against them i mean wolverine is in everything to do with marvel all the time and he kicks ass. Sometimes you would rather have a little cyclops or gambit though.

They're a band of smug, pompous incompetents with too much love from Games Workshop to make up for their lack of real substance or interesting aspects.

That, and Ultramarine blue is hideous unless they're painted closer to the crimson fist blue.

Would some mod not just sticky a list a reasons why ultramarines are being continually bashed, there are far too many of these threads.

Because then we'd have people who hated the Ultramarines complaining that we were playing favourites with the UM- it's a vicious cycle but it does provide amusing, nonsensical statements from members like hungryugolino.
