Not applying for a position has pretty much the same result as being
excluded or low-balled. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. If a prospective
employer isn't smart enough to realize that a past salary is not necessarily
a predictor of what someone will or won't accept in the present, I probably
won't want to work there anyway.
