I had something similar happen when I tried to order about £300 worth of
gear, but the customer service representative couldn't tell me why I was
rejected. It seems I'll have to take my high-value business elsewhere
(they're fine with me buying small stuff like mp3 downloads),
since I'll never be on the electoral roll because I'm too filthy a
foreigner to be allowed to vote.
