Another Consulting company I will never work for

in 2004-2005, when I was looking for a job, I heard from a number of IT consulting companies, and unfortunately, most of them turned out to be companies I would never work for. Between the ones that lied to me about jobs, or lied about my qualifications to companies, to the one’s who called my house at 11PM expecting to conduct a phone interview, I didn’t get a good impression. I know not all consulting firms act this way, but today when I took a look at the email addressed to this domain, I discovered yet another company I will never work for. See if you can figure out why:

One, anyone with half a brain can look at this site and figure out in 2 minutes or less that it’s a personal site, not a business, and two, this has a sent-time of 12:22AM on a Sunday in the middle of a three day weekend. Does that just scream bulk-mailer to anyone else? Through in the fact that the footer with the unsubscribe option has a link to a policy that returns a 404 error, and I wonder if that list of clients know they’ve hired consultants from a junk mailer?
