No telephone number, no street address, not even city or country, no references, no persons.

Well, at least they haven’t put on their site usual stock photos of the usual smiling staff and handshakings and so on.

“You do not have to pay us to apply or to work” – big fucking deal! Now there’s an attractive business proposition…
Oh, and it’s “length”.

There have been several solicitous posts recently, such as this one, in which the poster reveals no personal information— even to the point that it is stated “location unknown.” Now, if he, himself, does not even know where he is how can we have any confidence in the validity of the request or proposal?

Hi Laura Larmo, I posted the ad on several websites, I have no time and no need to fill all the blanks. Maybe you are not used to work with small companies.

Hi DPC, I am used to recruit and to use Internet, I always write ads full of details, because I have no time to answer non pertinent or redondant questions.

Hi Barry Milyovsky, I registered and posted my ad on several sites, I have no time and no need to fill in the complete formular.
Some VJ contcated me, ask them, they have no reason to complain about me. I have a costumer, who wants to protect the confidentiality of his partners, suppliers, recruitments, pricings etc … So he prefers I manage recruitment for me, I do not see the matter ?

Dear acronym NTC,

I was talking about your website; you don’t have that information on your website either.

It’s not about being big or small company; I’m only used to work with companies of which I know who they are.

To be fair, I don’t think the original post was written by a native english speaker and this probably provoked some of the comments here.

DPC: I don’t think it is a lack of English language skills that gives the perception of sleaze that we have about our acronymic friend but rather, as Laura pointed out, the lack of information presented both here and on his website. We just don’t know anything about him.
Additionally, as I only hinted earlier in this thread, LS has mostly lost its sense of community. It has become a repository of classified advertising. When membership by invitation was imposed a few years ago I opposed it, thinking it was unnecessarily elitist. Yet, had this restriction been enforced it would have eliminated many of these types of posts. There are, of course, other factors for the LS website’s decline such as lack of maintenance of the site itself. But these are issues for a different post.
