    This is turning in to jusy plain CRAZYNESS

    Background: This user posted the same message three times. Once in HTML, and twice in PHP. I killed the PHP thread and warned each of the duplicate posts for one point apiece (for those that don't know, warnings expire and you're not banned until you hit 10 points).

    PHP is awesome for many things, but it's easy to learn and has a low barrier to entry. I say "but" because sometimes that's a bad thing (from phpfreaks).
    I'm scared and you should be too: these are the people building websites you might use.

    Wow... It's so very scary that someone would manage to make something that has a certain amount of complexity and not know that the password shouldn't be anywhere but the database and even there it really should be hashed.

    I just get down my computer, I am working on it, but suddenly get down and can’t get start again.
    That's what happens when us old people listen to too much James Brown.

    What happens when you question a scammy recruiter

    My favorite part is how he claims I'm jealous of the hypothetical "Guru's" who will succeed with his hypothetical company.

    No wait, my favorite part is when he says I'm arguing with myself during my quote-and-respond argument with him.

    No no wait! My favorite part is when he randomly accuses me of being lonely.

    Ok, seriously, my actual favorite part is when he talks about how he's built up his reputation over decades, and then proceeds to be a douche and resort to personal insults.

    For my general amusement I googled the e-mail address he provided, and stumbled upon his linked in page (not linked) this was my favorite part:

    My superlative approach is based on two dimensions:

    • Unrivalled networks of people who trust me implicitly with their careers and/or vacancies, because I actually take the time to genuinely understand peoples needs.

    • My ability to locate ‘impossible to find’ candidates using non-traditional recruitment methods
    I wonder which dimension he considers devshed.
