Now various of us have pointed out how absurd this is, has anyone contacted the employer to tell them that they're 2 to 3 orders or magnitude out? I'm not suggesting that I really think that they'd listen, but still...

    If you think this is absurd, have you ever seen a request for 4 years of experience on a 2-years old technology? Better yet; a job for which the person who invented the technology itself cannot apply because he/she doesn't have the nesesary skills... - Abdon
      I haven't seen that, but when the company I'm working for now, bought another company they offered a generous redundancy scheme: the longer you worked for them and the older you were the more money they would give you to stop working for them. Some PHB must have filled in all the cells in the matrix: the lower left cell listed a figure for someone with 45 years seniority and age 50 or less!
