I just checked out the clients from hell website. Interesting stories. Where I am from there's been an increase of people making WordPress sites and promising to deliver products in less than two weeks. A lot of people operating the small businesses will opt for them as they charge very cheaply. This has led to quite a large number of them especially the not so tech-savvy to view systems development as easy and you just drag and drop items to create a website. putting developers in the "doodling pictures" stereotype like designers.

There's nothing wrong with that example, though. You can knock together a WP site in very little time if you use or lightly modify an off-the-shelf theme.

If that's all the clients need then suggesting something custom is overkill.
