I'm really surprised this thread has been allowed to go on as long as it
has. Hmm. But since it hasn't been quashed yet, I'll get in my two cents.

As I read Andrew's words below, "when requested" is what jumps out at me. I
sort of agree with him here. When you are responding to a job ad, it's like
bidding on a contract. When bidding on a contract, if you don't follow the
RFP to the letter, your proposal is dismissed, or if you're lucky, returned
for another try. If a company wishes to handle their hiring the same way
most companies handle contracting, that's their choice.
