I'm +1 for lax rules, but I'm disappointed Beau chose to hide the  
identity of the companies involved. I know Beau has a vested interest  
in making sure that we only go to the client through him, but I'm sure  
I'm not alone when I say that knowing the identity of the company is  
important when I decide whether or not to apply for a given job.  
Everyone says their employees are passionate and that they are looking  
for rare individuals. That sort of vague statement wouldn't work on a  
resume; it doesn't work in a job advertisement either.
