Listen up pay-per-click engines, PICK A REPORT FORMAT AND STICK TO IT!
As I write this I am rewriting the code that I wrote two weeks ago to parse a certain ppc engines report format. Why am I doing this you might ask?

We aren’t talking about small changes that I could have accounted for with a regex here or a regex there, we’re talking wholesale brand spankin’ new format!
