I think it's OK to find people on the web who fit a given criteria  
and email them about potential jobs.  In chicago.pm's case, the  
archives are public.

I've done that myself looking for hires for my department.  Googling  
for folks who show talent in a given area and are geographically near  
just makes sense, is relatively unobtrusive, and I think that all  
save the biggest cranks would find that OK.  It's just a matter of  
where you draw the line.
