Not sure what to say on days when the default ruleset of a "web application firewall" denies access for curl, and the circumvention is as complicated as:

alias curl-vs-asm="curl -A 'Mozilla'"

It starts to feel like wasting my lifetime when I see something like that. Otherwise I like my job (that's without irony!).

Update: Turns out it's even worse. They specifically block curl. Even

curl -A 'A' https://wherever-asm-is-used.example
