Perhaps.  The recruiter would probably get more applicants if an
accurate salary was accurately displayed - there is no point in applying
for something that's obviously way below your expectations.  Some of us
wouldn't consider (for example) anything under £90k p.a. so it's
unlikely that even in the most straightened times would they consider
one of these jobs offering £25k for "experienced" applicants.

Of course.  Perhaps a flag could be set so that it's easy to set a rule
to avoid such adverts.
