Since I was one of the first to respond with a bare "no," let me explain
Dan didn't seed the discussion in any way. He asked a yes or no question -
"is it time to reconsider a jobs only list." Without any apparent reason
WHY we should reconsider the topic, I felt the obvious answer was "No." I
also, at the time, didn't feel the need to elaborate on my answer.
I honestly don't care if we keep the job postings on this list or create a
new list. I'm just not interested in the discussion. If Ed, or anyone else,
wants a new list, just do it and tell us about it. It really doesn't matter
