When working on the agency side of things, it was staggering how frequently tracking tags were not implemented correctly for ad serving, affiliate programs and related things. There was never any intent to rip anyone off or get out of paying commissions. People just didn't know what to do with or how to implement tags. Whoever was in charge of the site was being pulled in so many different directions that tracking tags were usually the last thing on the priority list.
That doesn't help any when commissions are missing but most companies are not trying to rip off their affiliates.
