What would you like to do?

Remove me from this list and please don't contact me again by any means. That means don't e-mail me, don't call me, don't find me at conferences, don't send carrier pigeons to my house with small notes attached to their feet, don't even wave to me in the street if you see me. I'll snub you right there in public and that will be really awkward for you. I can't be held responsible if your friends don't talk to you anymore after that. And no, I don't care how great your position supposedly is, what technology it's using, where it's at, how many celebrities are invested, how close they are to closing funding, how much equity they're offering, how many times Paul Graham has high-fived the founders, how close they are to the Mission in San Francisco, how much the position is paying, how great the company is, who claims they know me that works there, how big their signing bonus is, or who I'll supposedly be working for/with. I'm not interested.

Just once more to be totally clear: don't contact me again. At all.

I appreciate your respecting my wishes,

Here is my canned response to unsolicited emails of most kinds, including recruiters:

I have a functioning time machine (i know it sounds unbelievable,but I assure you it works) that I need a 2nd person to operate with me. I'm looking for someone who is adventurous and reliable. Preferable a male; or a female that can do heavy lifting. I am leaving on September 30th, --CURRENT YEAR--,in the morning and plan to return October 2nd, --PREVIOUS YEAR--. I am going to June 1983 to handle some business. If you are serious about time travel and are reliable,then please contact me. You do not have to pay anything,but you would have to provide someone to watch my cat for the time we are gone. The only qualifications needed are that you are reliable and that the circumference of your head is no more than 64cm. We will be leaving from Mobile,AL. Let me know if you want to go with me.

I'm still confused... are you going to take the gig? I mean it sounds pretty sweet. Rails Ninja needed to work at company whose sole asset is a cheap bastard with the worst idea evar, please send code samples so we (ME & MY RETARD BROTHER) can kick you in the scrote for 36 hrs before hiring you, after which you will be paid Barely Enough to survive as a street bum turning tricks at night.

Congrats... you are now marked as SPAM. Why do recruiters SPAM jobs that don't pertain to people just makes me mad!!
