I guess if you are the breeder who paid high $ for a snake then speculation that it might be dead could be personal. Somehow I doubt Corey meant it that way. Snakes sometimes die in spite of the best of care. The big breeders don't owe us information their projects but in it's absence (coral glow) people are going to speculate. Maybe it's unprofessional to do it publicly? Public information gives the little guys nearly as much chance to stumble on something as the inside group. I guess we just need to be considerate of feelings.
