What does an officer writing "81" on my customs form mean?

I was trying to create a post, here, to ask the question: Why did the Canadian Customs Agent write the numbers 81 on my form, to re-enter Canada, at Pearson Airport? I could not figure out how to start a thread, so apologies in advance for posting my query here! Can somebody please tell me what it means?

Thank you and very sincerely,

Anthony

Welcome to FlyerTalk, Anthony / Buckystiles!

Did anything happen to you afterwards that you perceived to be a result of the 81?

It is an internal code, dynamically changed to separate to bad boys.

Welcome to FT.

The written codes onthe customs forms are ever changing... your 81 is no more unique than a random 65 or LHFT3752.

But as per above... anything happen to you withthe 81?
