Unfortunately, I can only say that I agree 100% on every point. It bothers me deeply that the "marketing machine" as you put it, can't leave well enough alone, especially when feeding is probably the EASIEST part of captive husbandry. In most cases, the choice you're faced with is "should I dust these crickets or not?" Like, how freakin' hard is this? Cricket boogie machine with freeze dried crickets????? Aren't the real thing like 20 bucks for 1000? It's gone too far.
