This I think is a legitimate beef. If a recruiter wants to work with
candidates over time and build up a good supply of candidates, he'll
give the unsuccessful candidates some feedback.

Of course, that assumes two things:

* That the recruiter got some feedback from the client company.

* That the recruiter is actually interested in building a long term

But then I may just be nostalgic for the last century, when good
recruiters actually did give feedback.
