Network fees fluctuate. They likely have gone up recently. This would put the squeeze on some operators, not all of them, and I cannot comment about RPM because I have no inside knowledge of their financial status.

The only big fishy site sportsbook.ag/playersonly limit access to the games for their fish...
Lock was in fact the biggest culprit of this theft, except they stole from ALL Merge skins. By a massive margin Lock stole large percentage of high volume players by breaking the network rules left and right, then split to form a new network. Now, with a low margin business, they have the industry's worst customer service, don't pay promos, and are pretty terribad with cashouts. Excellent business strategy!
Besides reading their joke of a forum here on 2+2, you should read this at poker fraud alert
Carbon is in excellent shape as you've speculated, tweaked and reran some old promotions, and offered more money in said promos than previously.
