I interviewed with someone who was very rude to me. After incompetently
interviewing me, he waved me out of the company's office with a sweep of his
arm like I was a bad servant. A real jerk, that one. He sometimes posts to
this list. One of his posts recently was for a URL for a job site that did not
work. I sent him a friendly note saying that and as an aside, mentioned that
I'd interviewed with him a while back. I put a smilie face in the post. Just
like at the interview, he was a complete boor. Not only did he not correct his
post to the list, but he completely ignored my message. What a complete jerk.
