I deal with a few that are pretty good. They're polite & responsive, and generally seem to care.
 
But you've probably seen my posts in the lounge over the past few months where some moronic recruiter pissed me off. Other than the few I mentioned, the rest are not much better than car or insurance salesmen.
 
It does seem that most companies now prefer to go through some kind of staffing agency. I also remember the days when you mailed in your resume to a company and they would send back a letter.
 
I have one Indian woman who is a recruiter somewhere in Virginia. I'm in California. She has called me no less than 6 times with some form of ASP.Net job, and each time I tell her I'm a Windows developer, not an Web Developer.
 
Last week after one of her ASP.Net emails I wrote back and told her not to ever contact me again.
If it's not broken, fix it until it is
