    new tools, always come with new opportunities (I prefer the term opportunities over problems) but this could very useful.

    @ Dragos I prefer thinking of "problems" as challenges or opportunities. Puts a a more positive spin on things. Glass 1/2 full or glass 1/2 empty?

    Something like this would help although it's still going to be hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. Not everything can be done well using filtering software. If I have learned nothing else at least I've learned to dig deeper on the results I get back from a search engine because the best results are not necessarily going to be at the top of the list. The folks that have learned to game the situation are going to be at the top of the list, and the folks that might be the best for the task might already be too busy to have time to figure out the rules of this game...I know, tough luck Charlie, but that doesn't make the search results any better...there still needs to be a holy grail of search that has the ability to "discern", and that software is still a little bit further out on the development front. But for the time being I'm, getting the feeling that everyone is getting tired of the noise generated by LinkedIn and related sites. So now that it'll be easier to apply for a position there will be 50,000 people applying for every position instead of only 4,000, and the person/company looking will still be overwhelmed and end up throwing up their arms in frustration.
