Hmmm, doesn't look like that to me -- he also posted to the Italian
group (correctly in that case, since it.comp.lang.python DOES welcome
Python job offers in Italian), got responses offering existing free
software to do multigraphs, followed up explaining he knows about those
programs but (being a non-programmer with what he thinks is a good idea)
still need a contract Python programmer to work on it, etc, etc.

Sounds like a person with likely good intentions that's clueless about
non-English posts (and apparently job offers) being unwelcome to this
newgroup (and about netiquette more generally -- reading groups'
charters before posting, etc).

About job offers -- I got my current (dream!) job through a long chain
of circumstances which DID begin with somebody posting a job offer to
this group... so, I can't honestly sympathize with the distaste that
some have expressed about seeing (relevant!-) job offers here (yeah,
there ARE better venues, admittedly -- but some of us dinosaurs read
newsgroups regularly but check out such sites only once in a while, and
only when specifically LOOKING for a job, which at the time of that post
that eventually got me a job, I definitely wasn't...;-).
