My fear. Been down that road with a previous company. I actually enjoy the whole interview process as it's always very interesting to get someone to talk about their experience and how they applied their knowledge. This normally tells me quickly who knows what they are talking about and those who are just wind. The reason I separated poaching and word of mouth is I lean towards the old saying, "Don't mix family with business", I tend to apply this with friends or associates I know closely as it can easily ruin a friendship. Poaching is more not knowing the person and by word of mouth I meant friend or associate.
