How not to apply for a Job

So our company put out a job offer, and asked for Resume and cover letter. We get back an e-mail that says:

Subject: Job offer

Salary range? Benefits?
Thanks and good shabbos

No resume, no cover letter and no name, for a job that specifically advertized the need to have strong writing skills. Needless to say, I didn't respond.

Yes, the unemployment rate in this state is a bit over a full percentage better than the national average, but really? This person, whoever they are, is going to be wondering for a long time why they can't find a job.
