email annoyance

I got an email from a (technological) recruitment agency today. I was not best pleased.

Firstly, all of the recipients' addresses were in the To: field.

Secondly, it was a MIME message with three parts. The first part was HTML:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<META content="MSHTML 6.00.2800.1491" name=GENERATOR></HEAD>

    <TD><IMG height=327
    <TD><IMG height=273
      width=600 border=0></TD></TR>
    <TD height=214>
      <P align=center><FONT face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color=#0033ff
      size=1><BR>This email was sent to you as a registered candidate with
