This is the truth, most recruiters (and I said most, not all) are 
ineffectual to healthy job search. I actually got one lady to admit that 
the position she was advertising for didn't really exist and they "get 
alot of call for positions similar, but this was just to farm some 

Being that she was a tech recruiter I asked her various questions like:
What is perl (her job called for this)? What does SQL stand for? She 
thankfully knew that Apache is a webserver and that DNS has "something to 
do with" the w's in front of a domain (having admin'ed a large DNS server 
it boggles my mind how many people don't have a clue).

The comments at the end of this article are really good:

When confronted by a difficult problem, you can solve it more easily by
reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
