A while ago I received a message from an upwork recruiter. His message was the following:

Nothing wrong here I thought and I checked the job description and I read this:

 From my own experience, bots do not read job posts or profiles for that matter.

It's completely ridiculous. This is why I ranted about them in another thread. Luckily, Valeria told me that she'll make sure these so-called recruiters don't contact me again.

I have mentioned it to CS too but yes you are right it is ridiculous. What if someone accepted this job that UPWORK PROPOSED and then got his account suspended for violating tos

I have recieved a few of those...  If they bothered to read my profile then they would see that the job is not a match.  It seems automated like the recommended freelancers.  They just want to make it feel real and personalized but it's a ploy to get the good contractors to bid on new clients so they don't have a bad experience.  Either that or they need to train recruiters to do more than just send out emails to the recommended freelancers.
