Goodness me!  I got something almost identical earlier this year, also from
Bianca.  Only mine suggested that Google had some "international positions"
available in Sydney...  I wrote back and told her I was disappointed at her lack
of research:

	6th April, 2007

	Thankyou for this generous offer, although it is a shame that it appears
	that you were not able to customise your form letter to show knowledge 	
	of my skills, occupation or country of residence.  It is a shame because
	all of this information is very easily found by your search engine when 	
	searching for "Jacinta Richardson".

I do understand that it's much easier to do a mail merge, but I would have loved
to see a more personal touch.  It would have tempted me away from my current
job, but it could well have done so from my previous....

All the best,
