Perhaps the CRM114 discriminator decided that you were a fifth columnist
fellow-traveler dirty commie red pinko stoolie, who tended to vote
independent and pledged routinely to NPR. So, they specifically
embargoed your ass. Social misfit! Adclick and the NSA knows all about
you, your little dog, and your weakness for BBQ, too. 

If a man in a trench-coat offers you a pulled-pork sandwich with Cole
slaw on it, in exchange for holding a plain manila envelope, you've been
made. Especially if the bun was lightly toasted. You know you're weak
and would sell out if some chopped pork skin was sprinkled lightly
amongst the smoked pork. Admit it and it'll set you free. I know, I took
the envelope too. Ric
