You'll note that I did not actually post an URL.  I referenced the
BayPIGgies web site, which I think can reasonably be expected to hold the
job posting policy, precisely because e-mail lists are transitory.  I
didn't even look up the URL, quite frankly.  I'm busy, and I think that
policy questions are best answered by going to the web site; I figured
that if I did that, people might remember that for the future when they
wanted to post an ad.  Obviously, we could start posting a FAQ to the
list weekly, but I think that would just add clutter: the kind of people
who won't visit the web site won't read the list FAQ, either.
