Ok, I just received the 2nd recruitment email for exactly the same job
from exactly the same recruitment agency.
I'm all for getting IxDAers jobs (who wouldn't be), but I'm not
convinced that recruiters should be able to post to the list.
Also, there is a difference between a company posting a opening
themselves (hopefully they're participating in the community
beforehand) and a recruiter posting a "mystery" job for someone else.
I feel that we should make a reasonable effort to keep a discussion
list for discussions....and filter out things that aren't.
So I wonder...
1) Are recruiters being moderated like all first-time posters are? (it
2) Are recruiters considered to be staying on topic?

Now, I don't just want to push recruiters away...they help to get
people jobs. So perhaps IxDA should have a jobs list or a job board?
