i hear what you are saying skibum, however:
>>tracking tags were usually the last thing on the priority list.
if you are short of time and the last thing on the list rarely gets seen to, then it is tantamount to deliberately ripping affiliates off. if part of your business is affiliate programs and you don't commit the resources to doing it properly then it is DELIBERATE in that at some management level there has been a conscious decision to not put enough resources into it.
