I have come across similar arguments that were used in the Palm and design
newsgroups. Many participants are interested, but maybe tagging the post
[Jobs] would be more appropriate, either for killfiles or discretion.
Failing that, a site that advertises Linux jobs may be the better option.
Newsgroups = push technology; Site/feed = pull technology. The latter is
better for those seeking a job.
Just my opinion...
