    Hmm, I’m thinking - We should place a bunch properties and just name them something like "${username}" - "${password}" and variations of that, and see we can “find/replace” cross-site script them into sending their bots details

      While I loved PropertyCity while I lived there, my early years in RuralTown showed that’s where the real Country really is. We had a herd of FarmAnimals and would always go down to the WaterBody on the weekends where the LargeMammals roamed free and wild!

    I got one of these calls last week. I told them for $10m they could have it. We haggle for a bit but they weren’t willing to even meet me half way.

          The other day I was having a bad day and had a call from an unknown number, so I decided to pick up but let them talk first. They just hang up and have not called again.

          I don’t think it was a good idea to pick up in the first place, but it was curious in the end.

            Iirc, that’s usually a sign that the robot caller has found a machine on the other end, since most people first respond with some sort of greeting right off the bat.

          It’s probably “automated” but some poor sales rep still needs to do a bunch of work to keep the automation going, guarantee it.

    I occasionally get texts offering to buy a house I used to live in. Which was in a state 800 miles from where I’m living now. Which I lived in for six months almost 30 years ago. And in which I just rented an apartment, the unit of which is part of the address they include in the text message. For bonus points, this house was torn down years ago.

      If you’re going to do that, at least ask for something useful. Y’know, like “Destroy all advertising firms.”

    Back during the real estate frenzy of the late 2010s I would get calls all the time asking how much I would sell my house for. I’d say “I could probably let it go for 2 million dollars.” (Even at the ridiculous peak, it was never worth more than 750k.) There would be a few seconds of silence on the line while they actually looked up my house. Then they’d say “oh.” And hang up as fast as humanly possible.

    Abundance of PascalCase in ThreadName disturbs me. If you don’t use FormatSymbol as format symbol at least name variables in camelCase. Or snake_case, or at the very least SCREAMING_SNAKE_CASE.

    This reads to me like someone signed up for a website with a fake location.

    123 Fake St. Property, City 32054

    not even using delimeters or format specifiers for string interpolation. theyre just doing sed s/PropertyCity/../ ? rookie mistake.
