I know Jack, and I'm pretty sure he's not trolling.  I'm sure he has a
position or two he's looking for.  He's been aware of this list at least
since December last year, and possibly a lurker since then too.

My sense of this issue is that job related stuff is ok from members, but not
from outsiders.  If you're an outsider and you have something to say, say it
to the entire group, don't cherry pick by downloading the list or capturing

I have seen job notices posted to this list on occasion, without flames.
There has to be more info than a note to call somebody.  Sure, it's a perl
job, but what kind of perl job?  sysadmin?  web cgi?  data processing?
