Pete: those job posts triggered my mental spam filter too, you're as entitled as anyone to push back on list.

It's totally reasonable to ask people posting jobs to state either which recruiting firm they represent, (if they wish to keep their client to themselves), or the actual company/job- in a professional and clear manner.
