Some companies have hard rules that require that response
to any threat of leaving. The reasoning is that once
word gets around that the company can be leveraged that
way, the longterm cost will be far higher than having to
replace any given employee.

As far as taking interviews with companies I wasn't
seriously considering working for, I have taken a few.
The context was always a call from some company because
"someone had suggested me to them" for an opening, and
when I told the caller I wasn't considering leaving my
current position the response was "come in anyway and
give us a chance to change your mind." In most cases,
the recruiting companies didn't change my mind, but once
one did. I could use a call like that right now...

Tickled my memory bone with this one. I once told an employer that I had a

better offer (which I did), but I'd stay if they'd come close (not match

it--just come close). I got the "don't let the door" treatment. What was

funny about it was after I left they wound up hiring two people to replace

me and paid both of them more than I had been getting.
