Copied directly from an email from a client:
My new business venture, ***, is to build web pages and other software for small business... For future work that I may get into can you also give me a web address or a persons name for the host server. I would like to know their rates and other info about sites on their server. Also if you have any info on all the things you do, besides what I already know, send that along so I can take advantage of that as well.
Me thinking: excuse me? mining me for information so you can compete directly with me? also "...so I can take advantage of that as well"???
Me actually emailing back: "Here's a link to a hosting company: www.xxx. Good luck with your research."
