After the recent ass kick - erm, polite request for a tracking check, to an underperforming merchant I noticed Skinstore hadn't replied to my question about why their EPC on my site was half of last months.

So I asked again in a slightly more annoyed sounding way and guess what?? Still no reply, which is odd because they like sending out email, and they just posted *in two hours* sales equalling the entire months total till now.

Statistical blip? Co-incidence? Or do they turn off the tracking till someone notices?

I don't know, but I'm going to experiment with more ass k - erm, polite requests here and there.
