I've kept up with all the recent HackerNew articles on GitHire. They seemed like a rather interesting service because I believe that hosting your projects on a site like GitHub, is the best kind of resume a software engineer can have.
That is, until they just spammed me with a whole list of completely random and unrelated jobs. I could understand it if I signed up to their site and requested spam (aka: LinkedIn), but I'm definitely not interested as I'm in the middle of starting my own company!
After checking out their site, I realized they've also got a profile up for me that I had no hand in creating, nor desire having. Apologies if that link stops working, hopefully they will remove my information soon. Maybe I should be pissed that I'm only in their Top 50%? ;-)
Since I wanted to remove myself, I clicked the "Opt out of Githire" link, which then takes me to a page on Github to authorize their application?!?
Hell no, I'm not going to authorize your application, just so I can opt out of your website. That is wrong on so many levels.
Anyway, I cc'd support@github on my response to 'Steve', so hopefully they will be going away soon. I can't see how GitHub is allowing this company to exist, when they so clearly violate their terms of service policy.
