Agreed. That a start up recruitment site isn't generating the numbers the founders dreamed about is more probably an indicator of a poor business model, poor exposure or in this case alienating all prospective users by opting them in (spammy and suspicious behavior) and then exasperating the users further by not providing a "one-click opt-out". Whats the real difference between Githire and scrapping blogs and web sites for e-mail addresses and spamming them? I can't really see a difference.
