Things seem to be on an upswing today with almost real-time data. This gave me a theory. I wonder if G updates stats in real time more often in the beginning of the month, periodically adjusting earnings, and as the end of the month approaches, there is a significant slow down to determine finalized earnings without showing a big reduction. This may explain the "click dump" theory along with periodic deductions. If all was in real-time, then huge deductions were suddenly shown in the finalized earnings, we'd have a real fit. Make sense?
