Well thanks for being brave enough to share that, on such a thread as this.

I say this because I have been a full time queen breeder, and it can be a hard game. As the RA meltdown was beginning, RR was still chatting and put up various reasons / excuses, and many of them rang quite true, to me, ie, they were pretty plausible, from my perspective.
Not to detract from whatever financial pain others are feeling. But my gut is that RA never intended it to turn out this way.
Not wanting to make any enemies by having said that either. But in a thread such as this, a group mentality can take over. I'm in no way saying that wrong has not been done.
