I have registered and I can see jobs on your website that I think I am suitable for. Why have you not called me?

This could be for any number of reasons. Often there are very specific criteria that the client has in mind.  Sometimes it could be that you have not informed us of a change in circumstance.  For example, you may have moved to a different location or be prepared to work at a lower salary than you had told us.  If in doubt then please call and we can double check. Rest assured if Abacus can put you forward for a position, we will do so!
