I thought about doing this once just to see how many people out there really were looking for work.

Guess my results probably would have shown just this very thing.

It's nice to know you stand on both sides of the fence.

blah, blah, blah. You have nothing of importance or relevant to add. I will no longer respond to you because it's like trying to talk to a whiny child.

I know companies do this all of the time, that does not excuse what he did. He is not a company. Two wrongs do not make a right.
As someone looking for work in this "open" field I appreciate the info even if he was wrong to post the opening. We don't hear enough about how many submissions companies are receiving for an ad as it is. Its good info to know; I think. There are mountains of scams out there anyway; what's another?

I sent those types of resumes to those types of CL ads and would get a reply back saying..."Can you please send a full resume?" So you are right the best resume to those type of CL ads are the ones with no address or phone number.
