|Is the use of the term "rockstar" by the "average/generic small business, corporate department or other software shop" in a job listing generally appropriate?|
Do you find it to be an overused, dead, beaten horse of a meme? Do you find it's often overused and abused by non-technical hiring personnel? Do you find it's often used in lieu of appropriate title and/or compensation?
Do you find that it automatically prejudices you against a job listing?
Do you use the term rockstar in your own job listings? If so, where do you see your startup or shop on the scale of gee whiz hotness?
