This would have basted the recruiter with his own spoon, would it not? :-)

Like it or not from a constitutional perspective, I do admire the symmetry of
what you've suggested, especially considering the alternatives. After all,
balance in the contractor/recruiter relationship demands that they assume the
risks associated with hiring a bozo to interface with contractors.

Anyway, thanks for the true grit reminder about how to survive in a doggy-dog
world. I think perhaps I will tell this tale of double-cross differently in
my memoirs.
