Thank you very much, Valentin, you really made my day.
NERD SCAM - what a beautiful expression to describe the IBC offer
However, I do know some people, even from the Faculty I am working for as a part-time-job, that not only filled the form and sent the money (hopefully receiving a their diploma, certificate, platinum medal, etc.), but also recommended others to be added to IBC database. Human ego (and nerd factor) is rather high, especially within scientific circles.
If IBC knew some important details from my biography, they would have offered me a nice, say, HP97, instead of the medal and I would not hesitate too much paying for it.
This is something that someone out of moHP would call a "double nerd", or a "nerd nerd", but who cares.
Proud to be an oldHP nerd!
