Your original complaint was about people who ordered months after the pre-order. The two people that you selected for your example were grant recipients, which is why they’re receiving early machines. This illustrates that the crowdsourced page does not (and can not) include all variables. Thus, you’re working with incomplete data.
That page shows three others who ordered after the preorder campaign and have already received a . 3 is not a large number.
Your next sample from the crowdsourced shipping tracker shows a list of people who ordered two days in to the preorder campaign (as opposed to months after). That screenshot shows three people w/no golden email, but one of those 3 posted on the forum yesterday to say that they got their email. Perhaps they forgot to update the crowdsourced page. So again, incomplete data.
Not knocking the crowdsourced page. I get that many are watching it in hopes of measuring shipping volume, and I understand why … but I wouldn’t make too many assumptions (or get too upset) based on the partial information supplied there.
