The Correlary, Which I Cannot Spell Without A Spell-Checker|
If it gets them what they want, then I can't blame them for using an efficient system.
I can and do fault people for doing the thing that gets them what they want without taking into consideration the needs/wants of others. Getting what you want, no matter what, is pretty anti-social.
It's sort of like the way some people consider it rude to call to find out if the company got your resume and to ask if you'll get an interview. It may well be rude, but sometimes it gets you a job.
If you consider it rude, don't do it. If the hiring manager considers it rude, you probably oughn't. That it can get you what you want can't be the sole justification for the appropriateness of an action.
Rudeness is diminished or strengthened by the person committing the act. The way you do it matters most. And people who have would normally think it rude to do something usually compensate enough to make it acceptable and thus doing something what they find rude makes it actually not all that rude. (There are always somethings no matter how the delivery is that will always be considered rude)
