Permanent fake job adverts, in America

Why are there so many job advertisements requiring you to know everything and 20 years of .NET experience? It's not ignorance in the employer's part... don't be so naive.

Now the exact same thing doesn't happen in Hong Kong. But then I can't help but notice the local college graduates seem to have a "single measure to fitness" mindset to job seeking, as if it's HKCEE or HKALE. The real world doesn't work like that - the "fitness" in the employer's mind can often be completely different to what you have in mind. They could be looking for someone stupid, cheap and doesn't complain.
