Gossip Mongering

If you have anything to add to (or subtract from) this list please tell us.
If you want your name removed, just say so, no need to lie about not being interviewed for the position etc.
(We have actually had candidates denying having given a talk that one of us personally attended...)
You can also proactively tell us that you might show up on some short list in the next weeks but you do not want to see your name on this web page.

A phrase like "(one more person)" means that we know a name but have been asked not to post it.
