I'm tempted to begin with "they might if they were in marketing."

You're right. People don't typically talk like this on IRC.

The chat is intentionally exaggerated. The conversation is imaginary, used simply in a lighthearted effort to illustrate that it's silly for commercial firewall vendor marketing campaigns to base a claim of "mine is better" solely on the vendor's ability to spin a new name for what is really a class of firewall that's been around for a while and is evolving.

Sorry. I don't really believe people talk like that on IRC in 2011. If you would like to prove it, please post a link to the server and irc channel where people are apparently still chatting as if it were the 80s.
