You might want to ease up on the assumptions. The situation as I read it in Michelle's original post is that the recruiter had already submitted the resume to the client. Therefore going to another, subsequent recruiter would be submitting to the client a second time. Hence what I said. If the resume hasn't been submitted yet, then you describe a great way to work the market and select the recruiter, rather than letting the recruiter make the choice. Proactive is definitely preferable to reactive.

*I* am not meek, nor do I accept substandard rates.

Exactly. That's why you should only agree to allow one of the
recruiters - the one you select - to submit your resume to the
employer. You are conflating my advice with the improper practice of

The company (employer) won't know you are rate shopping unless you tell
them. What is wrong with rate shopping? What do you think the employers
are doing, if not rate shopping? Why should employers be able to
rate-shop, but not employees? Rate shopping = free market. Maybe you
are willing to meekly take the first rate you are quoted, but some of
us are not.
