There's at least one spammer in who bothers to do their research.

They called me on my lunch break and offered a discount on their usual rate to build me a website with "more modern technology than m4 and Unix, like WordPress".

When I pointed out that WordPress runs on Unix-like systems, they laughed and said, "I know, but that's what the boss wants me to say."

I know what that's like.

@starbreaker The fact they mentioned m4 is staggeringly good on their part.

@hypolite No shit. I haven't even gone live with /that/ version. I'm still staging it on a subdomain, Then again, maybe they sniffed my mastodon profile that I still have linked on my site's footer.

@starbreaker "I know, but that's what the boss wants me to say." partially redeemed them from being a cold caller
