Poll: Have you ever gotten a job using a job board?

Job boards have come under a lot of fire for their usefulness. Have you had any success with them?

And I thought I was outspoken! Vincenzo Pilato, in this blog, says:

Putting your resume on [job boards like CareerBuilder or Simply Hired] is the same as placing it in the trash can. The odds of someone offering you a job are close to none!

I can't say that I necessarily disagree with him, but I wanted to get a sampling from you guys just to see if any of you have actually gotten a job or job lead from any of the major job boards. I'll pop over to the IT Leadership blog and ask if any hiring managers use the board. I'll post the results once everyone has had a chance to weigh in. (Feel free to talk about your experience with job boards—both positive and negative—in the discussion below.)
