Blasted resume

So it seems to me that posting a resume that includes some quality buzzwords onto the net is a good way of getting recruited. I checked my logs and saw a hit from a search for "resume or cv and j2me or j2me developer or mobile game", which would explain this email I just got:
Hi Dustin, 

I wanted to take the time to reach out to you after having had the
opportunity of coming across your resume online.  I am an account
manager with [company name removed] which is the leading recruiting
agency for the video game industry.  I have several clients in the
wireless games space that are looking for experienced software
engineers for full-time employment, specifically J2ME & BREW Engineers. 
Currently I am trying fill positions for these clients in the S.F. Bay
Area, New York, Montreal and London.  Based on your background, I
believe that they would be very interested in speaking with you in
more detail as would I.

Well I sent an email back saying "No thanks. Don't call me, I'll call you" =)

Still, it is nice to be offered opportunities.

"no thanks don't call me I'll call you" a pretty shitty response to a professional approach, Still you get your kicks. I should imagine you are still talking about it...Wouldn't think he will be in contact in the future smart ass
