I could not agree more with your comments. I feel absolutely no obligation to return a phone call or an email soliciting business.

Should an employer conduct background checks on its potential employees? Should a recruiter conduct them on their contract candidates?
Well, on one hand, background checks can protect the employer from negligent hiring lawsuits, which arise when an employee hurts someone and the employer should have known they were a risk based on their background.
