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
use them.
