Re: A sad day - Russell Apiaries closing
Rob provided a lot of very good information on this forum. I know I'm not the only skeptic that was impressed by some of his posts here...there had to be some actual understanding of the topics.
Unfortunately, the lies and made up information appears to have been mixed in. In talks that I've given, I've cited some "unpublished" work that Rob claimed to have done (wrt emergency queens). The experiment that he claimed to have done would have been exemplary...had it actually been done. I was sucked in....he claimed to be doing what I think I would do (or at least like to do) with the resources he claimed to have.
I'm thankful that he turned down our invite to speak at our conference last year.
