+1 on this proposal above.  I have a separate proposal:

I think a separate baypiggies-jobs list would be the best solution to the
jobs issue.  90+% of BayPiggies members aren't looking for jobs and would be
annoyed by lots of job posts. The remaining 10% are looking for work and
would likely welcome a large number of jobs.

If you are looking for a job, you subscribe to the jobs list.  If not, you
don't.  Seems like the simplest policy.  There is no value in having job
listings go to the 90% who don't want them.

Do others agree?
