Microsoft tries to recruit ESR

Microsoft tries to recruit Eric Raymond? No, just an embarrassing mistake their recruiters made. it seems tech recruiting work like this. Go down a list of names that the recruiter has peripheral knowledge at best. Send him a spamesque email like "Hi X, we would like to speak to you about a job opening we have, ... If you know of any other qualified person, please pass this message to them." One score when the recipient replies.

Well one of these Microsoft recruiting email inadvertently goes to Eric Raymond, the most public, most outspoken sworn enemy of Microsoft. So he posted this email to the public for a good laugh. It would be more funny he went on to arrange an interview or even got an job offer from some clueless manager :)
