Hey Junior!

   If the spammy recruiters don't send me things that are totally inappropriate by dint of location, permanence, skillset, or pay-rate, not to worry, there are many other idiocies in their bags of tricks.  Another common one to fall back on is the very closely related concept of level:

    (Yes, all the horribly broken HTML, resulting from the horribly broken text, were in the original.  This one commits another major sin I am intending to cover eventually, illegibility.)

       Yup, 28 years of experience sure qualifies me as a "SOFTWARE DEVELOPER - Junior".  After all, it takes a good century or two to become a "SOFTWARE DEVELOPER - Senior", right?  Oh, wait.  No, it doesn't.  In fact, it seems like a mere year or two is all that most companies ask when recruiting a Super-Duper Senior Development Rock-Ninja.  But that is a rant for another day . . . .
