If I am looking at the right chart, it does show a dip. But nothing noteworthy.

I wonder why the other company has different ideas?

Their chart shows a dip of 15%, roughly half of the other company's. And that dip seems to be consistent across all regions. However, if you look at the 12 month chart, the dip is actually a return to about average levels. We are coming down from a peak that occurred in October.

Like you, I'm curious where the other company's data are coming from.

I heard or read something about a huge spamer going down at last....maybe this has something to do with this, but wouldn't explain the discrepancy
