Job application stupidity of the day

Greetings.

A job advertisement I just opened gave me this rude message:
To ensure your ability to access the pages of this website, use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher. Click here to receive a free download now.




Close window
Let us think about this for a moment:  1) The point of standards like HTML is so that one does not need a specific browser in order to view Web pages.  A Web page which actually requires Internet Explorer is therefore broken and in need of revision, not to mention that whoever created it should be fired for incompetence.  2) How much is Microsoft paying these people to shill for them?
