My payments have been suspended too, so I contacted tycho as requested.
I'm really pissed off, so this is his email and my reply.
BTW: this is my correspondence, received and sent
, so I do have the right to publish it.

First, I would like to inform you that you should write it clearly on
your pool web site

Second, I would like to inform you that your pool has outrageous fees
The only way to barely cope with them is hopping.
Third, I would like to inform you that the only reason of existence of a
pure prop poll is hopping. Do you want to be the only one hopping on your
(which is obviously much easier for you than for anybody else,
because only you know exactly and in real time when you find a block)?
Fourth, I would like to inform you that my astonishing mining power is
: it's the power of my two 7970s. I earn less than 0.2
on your pool: nothing you should even care about.
Fifth, I would like to inform you that, since your stats are delayed,
and since third parties stats often give false positives and false
negatives, my hopping efficiency is much lower than I would like... and
than you would fear (LOL).
Do you want to discourage pool hopping? You're already doing, be happy
with it (or choose another payment system). I try to find workarounds,
just for fun. I won't become rich mining bitcoins.
Sixth, I would like to remember you when I emailed you months ago,
complaining for proportional shares submitted for a round and accounted
by your software for another one
(was it an incredibly strange bug,
or was it intentional? who knows), which is probably the most important
thing a prop poll must NEVER do.
Even on bitcointalk you admitted it did happen
How comes you didn't say anything about my hopping that time?
Lastly, I would like to inform you that I don't give a fuck
whether you like
or don't like your prop pool to be hopped. Your pool is hoppable, so I do hop
it and I will keep on doing it.
Now, if you don't want to be called a thief, don't steal my 0.027 bitcoins
(huge funds indeed, LOL), and let me withdraw them. Then block my account, if you
like: I will open another one, then another one, then one thousand more.
My best regards, sir.
