I have an idea. Remove jobs from the list altogether. Then use the
Baypiggies website to allow/filter job offerings; this way the job postings
are off the mailing list ( which is nice ), the jobs can be clearly,
conveniently filtered/organized, and Baypiggies who are looking for work can
subscribe to the website page changes ( RSS or similar ).
