Agreed.  They had some marginal benefit several years ago when the job board
first started and only had a couple postings, but the recruiters, HR people,
and job hunters pretty much seem to all know this is the place to be now.  I
suspect that all we are doing with the links is providing an opportunity for
job hunters to waste time poking around those sites for nothing.

Chris, next time you're in there, please just rip them all out.
