I really want to fly under the radar and think I do a pretty decent job, but it's always good to get educated on stuff like this. Pigs get fat....hogs get...FR's.
There doesn't seem to be any obvious trigger...but many, many people who got a business PRG subsequently got FR'd. Therefore, the biz PRG seems to be a FR magnet. There really isn't any better answer as far as I know.

MTA: I'd consider this, but...I think they might not like my applying for a new card while I'm currently dealing with my own post-plat FR.
