    Things that make you scratch your head till it's bare...
    For some reason, UK-based merchants on a US-based network (need I say which one? ) reverse 60% to 80% of sales month after month, while merchants on a UK-based network, serving the same demographic, barely reverse 3% of transactions.

    WTF is up with that? Almost makes one wonder if there may be some sort of incentive program to attract clients to the US network. You know, something like "we'll let you pull this stunt if you give us 'x' amount of the proceeds".

    Makes one wonder if the USA networks are controlled by ACLU loving, BHO friendly wanks allowing both merchant and affiliate fraud to be rewarded as normal business leakage.

    Same exact merchants? The same demographic alone isn't all that important--merchants in the same market usually vary widely. I've found some massive discrepencies among home decor merchants at one network (the worst dud later switched to the LiveBeta Network ), for instance.
