Ive noticed a few individuals that have entered approxmately 4 group breaks on average and then back out of all of them only to join 1 other one. If they claim that they dont have the $$ for it, then how are they able to afford to get into the next group break?

This type of behavior affects everyone in the group break. Until all payments are made, the host usually never orders the case. Within that time the product could possibly go up in price. Could these "floaters" in group breaks actually be speculating by taking up slots then backing out at the last minute because the product didnt go "hot" after going live? If so, I think such a practice should be scrutinized.
Thats the world we live in nowadays. Nobody has consideration for anyone.
Its sad that a good number of the conversations in this hobby begin with "how much"
