And once again the amount of posts in a discussion about whether or not there are too many job postings significantly exceeds the amount of job postings!

Potential candidates as well as recruiters are reminded that hitting reply will result in a mail aimed back to the list.

You must then manually edit the To: field.

Furthermore: Outlook's "recall this message" will not work, rather it will send a further email to the list, each and every time you click it. Although perhaps third time's a charm?<https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-uk/2013-January/002760.html>

You have been warned!

As people have mentioned, the consensus that I've seen is that posting a
job ad is fine so long as it's not recruiter spam.

Of course, recruiters advertising for a specific job with an appropriate
level of detail about the job in question (location, salary, expectation
of role, desired skills and experience, information about what the
company does) is also fine.

What is recruiter spam? How about, "exciting opportunity for Python
ninja in green-field project at one of London's most exciting employers"
is, IMHO, NOT welcome. It's just meaningless noise and probably
recruitment phishing.

Hope this helps,

N.
