I'll add a note to the welcome message that is served up by mailman.
However, almost nobody ever reads that :)

It has been a long standing (probably 10 years?) policy on the list
that job postings are requested to use the [job] tag so that messages
can be filtered appropriately, so it is somewhat of an unwritten rule.
 But if you have been on the list for a while, you're probably aware
of it.
