Your post was excellent. Your above quote sums up what I've been trying to convey......Whether the motivation is nefarious or not, and I'm not suggesting that it is, I just feel like a single public statement could provide sufficient clarity for everyone and make the whole issue go away.....
RJ made his statement in an August update, that deliveries would begin in September to preorder holders. In my mind, I feel he knew the deliveries were going to employees. If not, he should've. All he had to say is, the first deliveries will be going to our Employee Preorder Holders. That's why I find it misleading.
He didn't deceive anyone, nor was it malicious, but the fact he left employee out is my concern. It carried my mind in the direction that the deliveries were going to be made to the General Public. There is a difference between an employee preorder holder and the General Public preorder holder. One has a potential substantial discount and the other doesn't.
