Over the years I've adopted a few rules dealing with 3rd party recruiters:
* No fishing. If you don't have an actual job to talk to me about I've got better things to do
* It's my job search. I don't need you to manage my job search. I'm not going to tell you everywhere I've applied already.
* No meet 'n greet's. We can have face-time after you've secured me an interview
* 10 minute rule. Without an actual job description from your client(s) everything we need to discuss can be done in 10 minutes.

Allow visitors to pay some (reasonably small) sum to get rid of advertisements.

The first year I paid for a Pandora subscription my music listening experience changed. I hadn't even realized how much interruption I was really getting until it wasn't there. Now I recommend it to everyone I know who uses their service.

As a driver I've many times let someone "steal" my right of way since that seemed preferable to being in an accident

I do something similar but different. I sometimes let someone "steal" 45% of my right of way, since that way they will see just how bad of an accident they would have been in if I hadn't actually slammed into the side of their car when it was in front of my big-ass truck. n2ch
