Job Application Hall of Shame

I applied for a telecommute editing job yesterday. The online application had no means to attach a resume. The only way to include it was to paste it into the one-line box below; it wasn't expandable. So when you pasted your resume into the box, it was one very long string of text.

If you wanted to check your resume, you had to scroll back all the way to the beginning. Guess who didn't do that.

What were they thinking? I have no idea what they see when they open an application.
