Sorry, more than a decade of experience with Usenet and mailing lists
says that Deirdre is precisely correct. This is primarily a discussion
and announcement list; we permit job ads as a courtesy to list
subscribers. The rules that we have are designed to ensure that we get
a minimum of job ads that are maximally applicable to the list. There
are plenty of other places to look for jobs if that is your focus; please
