OTOH, I work exclusively with telecommuting freelancers as we don't have a brick-and-mortar office.  I think a good deal of the possibility of a match comes from the disposition of the hiring manager.  Some people simply need direct physical contact in order to relate to a person.  Personally, I prefer written contact via email, as it seems to suit my personality better.
