Are you going through a firewall?  Some of 'em can do that to you.  That may not be the intent, but it can be the effect if they're set up wrong or not scaling well.

The waitress asked, "Do you want lemon or no lemon with that iced tea?"
Naturally, I said "yes", and then burst out laughing, because there simply
wasn't any other answer in Boolean logic.  She didn't get it, but I got
the lemon, which I wanted anyway.  Later, I realized a quantum computer
could have offered another answer: Schroedinger's Lemon!
