The explanation I got from Jeff at that time was that Sigma, Tamron, etc lenses were designed and manufactured to work on Canon bodies. With other words, you don't need any adapter to mount them on Canon bodies. The mods have to draw a line somewhere and that's what they did. We have to respect that and play by the rule.
Starting in 2004 more and more people (remember Guy Mancuso?) embraced the alternative lens route and on any given time, more than 50% of the threads on the Canon board pertained to Leica or CZ lenses. There was quite a bit of lively "discussions" between more "conservative" Canon shooters and Alternative followers. At the end, peace was restored when the new Alternative Board was created for that particular reason. Let's face it the vast majority of people that frequent the Alternative Board are Canon shooters anyway...
