I didn't actually check every merchant manually, just ran a script to ping them all so I could find which ones were dead/inactive, so if a webpage has rebranded since it's been added I did not check for that (or if they stopped accepting Monero). For some of them (such as MoneroDirect) I've reached out to hyc to figure out what's going on, but the others I've just removed because they seem pretty gone and I can't find anything on Google about their new URLs.
This is my first semi-meaningful change so yay :) I'm happy
