As a long-time Python hacker who was laid off a couple of weeks ago and is
currently looking for my next gig, I'd be inclined to disagree... ;)

That said, I don't feel strongly either way about reinstating the recruiter

posts were becoming common I'd definitely want to reinstate it, but for now it
doesn't seem like too much of a problem.
