^That's it, Lorna. A push to deliver more relevant ads (and content) to users. More targeted advertising means they can rationalize an increase in advertising cost.

Maybe they figure, raise prices by throttling supply and see if users respond to fewer, and presumably more targeted and higher-quality, ads. Worst case, they backtrack.
