The vulnerability is against you.

If you respond 1S, you will be unable to raise diamonds in a competitive auction.

Partner would think that you held values.

Bid 3D as a weak jump raise.

East is pushed to 4H, a contract that finishes one in the glue.

Perversely 5D comes home with the king of clubs onside and a good guess in the spade suit.
