there are good and bad reasons why you did not get the job

Matt Wilcox, who you may remember [see 3/8 entry] as having a keen sense of humor, tries to help us understand why he didn’t hire us.

I googled you and found that a) you are weird or maybe b) whine a lot on listservs with searchable archives or c) whatever. Do I know that this is wrong, that I should be evaluating your skills and not your personal life? Yes, of course. I am not stupid. Will I do it anyway? Yes, of course. After all, I am not stupid.
