For the record, if you're a recruiter and want to send a Perl related
job posting to the list, just send it to the list!
If you're not subscribed to the list, the message will be
temporarily delayed until the list moderator (which is currently me) can
read it and approve it.
But if it's actually Perl-related it will go through in a day
