As I've said on IRC a few times; can I suggest that we drop the rule
about no posting by recruiters?  Presently the only objection that
anyone raises when it happens is that it's against the rules, not that
they actually mind the posts.  Perhaps dropping the rule and seeing if
we become 'overwhelmed' would be a worthwhile experiment.

With the exception of the sense of humour failure around the start of
this particular thread, nobody has ever raised any kind of objection to
a job post by a list member in the time I've been reading the list.
