How many resumes do you get Joel?
Your article has garnered a lot of feedback. I'm curious, how many resumes do you receive per day and total that you have to dig through?
Between 10 and 30 a day for posted jobs. A handful more for nonexistant jobs.

Yeah, at 30 resumes a day it is completely reasonable to throw out huge amounts of resumes for arbitrary reasons. How long has that job ad been posted? How many hundreds of resumes have accumulated so far? Nuff said.
Incidentally, has anyone noticed that the firstname.lastname@example.org address is advertising Yahoo services?
BTW, though I can't resist the wiseass posts, I actually think that Joel's article is a well-written piece of common-sense.
Step 1, read the resumes, cull the chaff - hopefully a lot of it.

crazydood2004 -at- hotmail.com might be a real address which is why Joel took the trouble to obfuscate it.
Poor crazydood - what did he ever do to you guys?
