Somewhat obscure, but not so much in Code4Lib.

He most definitely was.
I believe Stuart's point was to suggest that when the multiple
requests for a separate list for job notices get immediately shot down
with "no - use an email filter, or are you stupid?"  it doesn't
help to create an "inclusive" and "good learning environment".
 NB the respondents aren't explicitly "are you stupid" but that's
how it may be taken by some people.
> And to answer the original question - job listings help more people than they annoy so they should be kept as-is.
My view is that it would make more sense to have separate discussion
and job notice lists, as I see in other places. But I'm not that
bothered personally, as I would subscribe to both and filter them into
the same folder in my mail client. :-)
