In the end, as the list admin, I make the rules.  However, these rules
come from long experience with the pain that results from recruiters
posting.  All too frequently, they post excessively, without caring
whether the jobs really require Python, and it often results in multiple
postings for the same job.

So unless there's a massive outcry from a substantial portion of the
list membership, the rule stands.  It is IMO the best compromise between
prohibiting job ads and the free-for-all that can result from allowing
any ads.

And *NO*, do not start a big thread on BayPIGgies.  If you support Mike's
position, send him email, and he can post a summary -- including e-mail
addresses registered to the list.

Someone asked about Google recruiters -- those are different because they
are employed by Google, it's effectively like an HR person posting.  As
the job rules say, we *prefer* technical people to post jobs, but it's
perfectly fine for in-house recruiters to post.
