responding to job online question

I saw an interesting job online. There was no company info. Only what they were looking for in applicants .......

So I wanted to get some info before the ad disappeared. So I replied to get more info and some information about me. Saying Im interested and I'd be further interested in applying in a future date.

guy replies back quickly and says 'i failed to meet their requirements because I can't follow instructions"

I'm assuming because I didn't send a resume. So is this guy a douchebag or should I not waste his time because I can't apply now anyway?

it's a real company. I got the information when the guy replied. He is the vice president. I'm assuming the company only has one vice president.

I replied back to him stating, even if I applied, I wouldn't send a resume to an unknown ad.

a lot of companies, usually headhunters, do not put the company information on the ad. If it's a real job hunting site (monster, career builder, etc), those companies PAY to put those ads on. That usually (but not always) deters the scammers.

Every interaction with a company is/can be used in the hiring process. The guy seems to be a jerk, would you really want to work there anyways?
