I question the sanity and motivations of whoever posted it. I was going to salute at least their skills at pastiche, but turns out it's a copy-paste of a Joel Original, only with 'fog' replaced with 'fag': https://www.joelonsoftware.com/2006/10/24/the-phone-screen-2/

No, it doesn't. Pastiche works because it demonstrates how easily it is to sound like someone else *by writing the text yourself*.
