And I'm not specifically against recruiters either, for example Steve Buckley's email in January http://lists.lrug.org/pipermail/chat-lrug.org/2012-January/006798.html gave me a good idea of what domain the company was working in, the sort of work you might be doing and sounded like it came from a human being.

>>> Exactly. As a recruitment consultant, I won’t post the company I’m working with unless I am working exclusively on a role, because if someone applies directly to them I get nothing for passing on the information about it and having them get the job. Perhaps we could come to some sort of gentlemen’s agreement of giving the company name in the first instance someone contacts you, since you would then already have their details to confirm your interaction with them?
