Making mistakes in job postings

Came across this blog which tries to post technical and software jobs in India.

Check this post by a third party recruiter which starts off trying to keep the name of the client secret but eventually lets it slip out by the third sentence. The client is Microsoft. And I am wondering if the slip is deliberate or a really stupid attempt to cut paste the job description from another email !

Recuiters also have to learn to use proper English and understand that not everyone understands their jargon. For example, this post says: "Pl see specs below"

For most laymen in India "specs" means spectacles and not specifications !

As a recruiter you are a sales-person. Do you speak your customer's language?
