I know many people, including myself, who will not even speak to a recruiter without knowing who the company is. I dont want to waste my time. Being on both side of the hiring process, I've found that many, many recruiters really do not know very much about the companies or technologies they are recruiting for so it is much more beneficial to be to be able to look up the company myself to understand what they do and what technologies they use. (I do not know you so you may not fall in to that category, but its just a general observation over many years)
With that said, I feel like a recruiter who will not share this information is selfish and is only looking out for themselves and that is not a good way to set up a relationship with a client in any business. Personally, I will not even consider speaking to a recruiter who works like that. If the recruiter is willing to work with me by giving me that information, it makes me much more comfortable to work with them and I would never go around, and bypass them. Its about setting up relationships - that's just good business.
In any event, I like Meghan's rules about job posting and think it is great to have such posts sent to this mailing list, although my personal preference would be that they come from the hiring companies directly.
P.S. .. This was the first hardcore discussion I've seen on this meetup group since it was started - hope we can have more, preferably relating to MongoDB though! :)

It is difficult as a recruiter to list the name of the company because if we do so, what is to stop a) the candidate from going direct to the organization and not through the recruitment agency, and b) another agency using that information to gain access to the client directly.
