ble for me to attack you personally. i can and will however attack what you write which is a whore of a different color. On the "Failure thread" you continually postured that your business model is somehow superior. Any time anyone is not happy to pick their business model and do it well without feeling constrained to postulate that their chosen path is better than another it just tickles the hell out of me to kick the living shit out of them, thank you very much. Did i atttack your recruitment (i hate than damn word) knowledge or credentials. Not one bit more than you attacked every contingency recruiter on the planet by continutally blowing your little horn that you are somehow able to provide more quality than anyone else or no one who does not do it your way should ever call themselves a headhunter. That my friend was what i was attacking. But given your theory that i can't attack you personally because i dont know you, let's expand that , i can't possibly attack your knowledge or credentials either because all i know about them is what you choose to regurgitate ,ergo it is impossible for me to attack you in any manner. I am just observing and giving my opinion with a little sarcasm mixed in, how quaint of me.
It has been my experience that pissing people off does not mean one has found any hole in their argument just simply that it is possible to be a troll and piss people off. A lot of folks prefer and are trained not to engage or poke a troll who just gets their jollies by pissing people off. I love to poke trolls. You entertain yourself by pissing people off. I entertain myself by poking trolls until they have made it clear just exactly what they are or they step out and admit that they just write like insulting jerks to see if they can stir up traffic.
I am not sure why you can't seem to see the link on Evelyn's blog but it's there so toddle on over and check out her comments. I would guess that the purpose of your comments that were deleted were in fact just to ,as you say, "piss someone off".
Preaching to the choir perhaps, but let me say this about the article she posted. It is well writtten and certainly something that might be good info for many young recruiters starting out to refer to when asked by anyone why they should use a recruiter. You went after her with your (in my opinion) arrogant tone. She chose not to play. I would not have deleted your comments but then i'm a medal bearing, award winning , world class bitch of a crusty old recruiter who has prowled these halls for over 35 years so sonny , in my book you are as green as you seem to think she is. Run that through your superior intellect and see if that will process.
I happen to think that we (that's the royal we by the by) have a responsibility to our younger peers to encourage, correct, suggest, sometimes argue but above all not to try and beat them to death if they show their butt a little while they are learning and growing in this industry. If you prefer to spit and hiss at them like a pit viper so be it. Not my style. I will go to the ground with one of my experienced peers who should know better or thinks they live in an ivory tower. However now that we have established that you just like to piss people off to entertain yourself and i'm super busy and am now bored with troll poking i'm going back to work.
Go pull wings off of flys it would rid the world of a real pest and probably be more satisfying to you than beating on a young woman who wrote a good blog and wasn't interested in your brand of bullshit.
@Evelyn, my suggestion for what it's worth, take the moderation off your blog, don't delete comments. Just let it roll. If the trolls come at you either ignore them or just wait a minute and some old crusty recruiter will get a gut full of it and take care of it for you. Nobody gets more support than a lovely young woman who is harrassed by a troll who just wants to piss people off.…
