First of all, I agree--let's see postings that have more to do with
Python, Beau ;)

Secondly, who here still wants to see postings from recruiters?  I
know Glen, Aahz, and me all recently got jobs, but I'm assuming not
everyone else has.  Quick vote: +1 to continue with the lax rules, -1
to crack down.

Best Regards,
