I hate when they say this in their program details:
Applications to join our affiliate program are manually reviewed and processed within 2 weeks of submission.

And yet when you apply you automatically get this:
Your application has been declined by this advertiser for one or more reasons. If you have a question please contact the advertiser through advertisers detail page within the account manager.

There was nothing manual about that.
Oh and the other usual stuff ... internet is global ... blah blah ... 85% of my traffic for this site is US ... blah blah and so on.

I'm done
