Allison,

It was nice of you to respond to their reactions. I'm pretty sure the only reason there was a negative reaction was that the subject line was written in all caps. I think everyone can appreciate the value of recruiters letting us know of open opportunities, and the rest of the email seemed well enough written. We get these on the list all the time and there was no backlash before. Since you are a recruiter and not a coder, you likely have no idea of what a serious faux pas writing something in all caps is - it's a BIG DEAL. ;-) (Apparently enough to get banned from a group!)  The complainers weren't very specific, so I'm just writing this to help you know what they meant - how these seemingly small things can make you friends or enemies in the coding world. So keep it professional - stay away from all caps and gimmicky expressions, include good technical content, and you should be fine. Please spread the word to your fellow recruiters.

Have a nice day,

Trevor
