I should rephrase it
I called a few days ago and the guy who is the head of marketing was unaware of any issues at all. I am unsure who was responding to the forum posts people made at the ECA site, but...oh well. He asked me to send him this thread in an email so he could read it over and work with amazon to resolve the issues. That was the same day that the issues got fixed. so to me it seems rather...an odd coincidence that the issues were around for about two weeks without an resolution and the day I call it gets fixed. I didn't do much, but posting on these forums to moan and groan does nothing to fix the problem. A nice and friendly call not only got the issue fixed, but I got some nice swag as well.
Thanks man. Sounds like we all owe you one for your diligence. Glad to see you got some cool stuff for it.
