I tried that and it stopped, and then it started again, and kept starting
again despite telling them to stop.  Finally, I stopped responding
entirely, which just resulted in a recruiter sending me increasingly
desperate messages, begging me to respond.

The whole thing was quite weird.  Google seems to have an institutional
problem with taking no for an answer, at least based on my experience.
