You may not be aware, but the Apache test page is a plague for these
kind of questions.  Red Hat has been getting them for years.  There are
a couple of (in)famous stories from CentOS[1] about people seriously and
continuously misunderstanding that page.

You have to figure, that with >6 billion people, there is going to be a
range of ability to read a Webpage and follow instructions.  It is
literally impossible to catch all the cases.

And for this were born, "Canned Responses":
