Oh, look, they give me a link to opt out. Isn't that nice. Kinda like if I were to start punching you in the face, assuring you that I'll stop if you ask me to. More interesting though is the 800 number. I think I'll give him a call to share a piece of my mind. You might want to tell him what you think of this kind of tactic too.From: Monster <anonredir route.monster.com> To: [me] Date: Sat, Apr 20, 2013 at 9:52 PM Subject: Employee Benefits Sales Representative , I saw your resume online, and thought you might be interested in a career opportunity with our firm.

Note that lonely little comma all by itself up at the top of the body. No, that wasn't a transcription typo, I copy-pasted the whole thing. It's as if they maybe meant to put some kind of salutation up there, like "Hello, Dave"... or more likely, "Dear Actively". Ya think?
They're looking for a "qualified professional". Gee, how qualified do you think they need to be? I'm guessing that candidates need to pass such stringent requirements as having breath, a pulse, and an IQ above freezing... in Celsius.
So, does this entice me to even consider sacrificing my long and successful IT career to become an Employee Benefits Sales Agent? Nope. It entices me never to do any business with Mutual of Omaha, and particularly the Don Lilly Agency, especially if Blake Moore is still there. Maybe Don will get a clue and fire his little spammer....
