I guess if civilization ever fell apart so badly that we no longer had any
form of transmittable communication, then we could send thank-you rocks.

I tend to favor email or telephone follow-ups and thank-you's, but I seek
contracts, rather than full-time employment, perhaps that makes a
difference. Snailmail will take at least two days and contract decisions
are frequently made very soon after the interview. I tend to know in the
interview if the contract is a go or not, but I do follow-up with the
recruiter to provide feedback and to keep the job search going, as well as
to say, "thank you."

Also, it's been my experience that recruiters do not want candidates
contacting clients directly because of a competition thing. The client
could make an offer to the candidate without the recruiter. This does
violate the recruiter-client agreement, but since recruiters are so guarded
about communication between clients and candidates, I imagine that this
circumvention has occurred more than a few times.
