In looking back on the process it is clear to me what changed. When you punish candidates you only get those candidates that are desperate enough or unsure enough of their own skills that they will put up with that abuse.

You sir, deserve a +100 for this statement. It's true. For instance, I know I can run circles around most people with CSS. This is a frontend job after all. But I'd also like to have kids before I die. Life needs balance.

When you talk to candidates as the professionals they are you get a whole new level up interaction and find out what you really need to know. Which only comes down to ONE thing: Will they work with your team and be a contributing member.

Agreed. Respect goes a long way.
