Downside of sales rep bots

I was browsing around for good Windows based webhosting sites, and when I was leaving one called JustHost.com I was stalled by a sales rep.

Nice I thought, cause I would be able to get quick answers to my queries. The correspondance went like this:

Connecting to Agent...
You have been connected to Grace

Grace Says: Hey Wait!! I have just been authorized to offer you our UNLIMITED hosting plan for just $3.95 month. To take advantage of this special one-time offer just CLICK HERE!

Grace Says: When you are ready just say "Hi" and we can get started....

You: Hi

Grace Says: You get a free domain for life, free instant setup and you can host unlimited domains, plus, much much more.

You: Huh?

Grace Says: Today only I can offer you this special 20% discount so you can sign up for just $3.95 month. Just CLICK HERE to get this today only offer!

You: Who are you and what the fuck are you talking about?!?!

Grace Says: OK, I'm going now. If you change your mind and want the discount, please CLICK HERE

Hmmm... What if I was a bit more polite and would actually like to sign up for an account and the sales rep was rude enough like this, just leaving me without even trying to hear me out?
Bad goodwill, badwill, potato, tomato...

I would definitely never consider them =)
