It's really unfortunate that people threatened you in response to your email. I thought it was tasteless & painted a picture of a hellish job rather than a great one but to each their own & no one deserves harassment.

That said, programmers complain about how you do your job because recruiters seek out communities where programmers want to talk about programming & spam those communities & make it more difficult to just talk about programming because there's a bunch of crappy spam coming from the email list I expect to get programming chat from. You may be a great guy who sent a crappy email but a lot of recruiters are just trying to move people from job to job because that's the way incentives tend to be aligned in your line of work.

I understand you are upset about the threats & they are super inappropriate. But you also just told a community of programmers that you don't care how much you piss them off because you did your job & you're gonna get your check. I certainly wouldn't listen to job offers from you after that or recommend you to friends.

There is nothing I'd rather do. I love my job. I like forming lasting relationships with both clients and candidates alike. When Friday rolls around I usually throw a bunch back with a couple of cool developers I know. Sometimes I hang with clients too, but it's not brown-nosing. It's friends hanging out with friends.m

While the replies and the threats and the lude pics and the cat thing was terrible I'm not going tot waste my time replying to the negative stuff. I simply delete the negative stuff and go on with my day. I only care about the positive stuff. I received so many positive replies, how I made their day and they laughed so hard, etc, many of which were women. I didn't get a single negative reply from a female. Maybe I'll get one later. I'm sure you all hope I do. I spoke to multiple interested parties today and submitted 4 to the client and they've requested an interview from 2 (for now).

It's because I'm not a programmer and I don't have any advice for them aside from dress nice, try not to drink before an interview, bring a resume, be on time and so on. I guess you've all been the epitome of a perfect recruiter in your past. I thank you for your expert advice, I'll take it all under consideration.

> I have a Greenwich, CT client looking for a Ruby on Rails Developer for a 1-year contract engagement with a 99.99% chance of extension. You could do this job one-handed in a club (think Pacha or Marquee) standing right in front of the speaker while scantily-clad go-go girls provocatively gyrate to house music in an enclosed multi colored shower/cage-like room. The job pays to $125 per hour, but they can swing a few extra dollars for the strippers. Master jedi, super ninja, Chuck Norris coding skills required.

While the client would prefer a 100% on-site employee, a day or two working from home would be allowed once they know you're the king or queen of honesty, killer skills and the strongest work ethic ever. US Citizens or Green Card holders only please. Full job/client details shared with qualified applicants.
