    Or maybe, just maybe, they interviewed poorly, asked for too much money, lacked experience, weren't qualified, or a better applicant won the position.

    What are you even getting at? Are Silicon Valley companies supposed to hire every person that applies? Why is deciding not to hire a candidate such a horrible thing? It's business.

      Agreed, it could go something like:

      "I asked for 250k to work at the local ad agency as a sr dev, but they said no. I now work at Google for 80k as a jr. dev"

      or a better applicant won the position <- this one. Now if ANY of these would say "[company x] picked [person y] instead and look at how [company x] failed since then!*" - in that case, the whinge would be completely legit.
