Flattered by spam

I hate spam. Like everyone else on the internet.

But maybe not all spam. I now get occasional emails from two technical recruiters in the United States asking me if I want a job as a Linux kernel engineer. As I have never signed up with Texan technical recruiters I assume they got my email address from either greping the kernel or LKML.

Either way I admit to being slightly flattered by it, even though they have almost certainly sent out thousands of these things.
