Some numbers are never a bad idea.

Barry is right in observing an accelerating job-posting trend (see figure; 2012 is rough expected number of messages with either job or position or professor in subject). I was expecting a valley of death around 2008, but I see only a tiny meaningless dip.

This trend is comforting to myself and to many individuals: I do hope it keeps up, at least until I find my dream job ;-)

Hello everyone,
I don`t want to be rude or create any problems, but I happen to think
that if someone just wants to leave the list, all the person needs to do
is follow the instructions onhttp://www.auditory.org/ (copied below for
reference). I had the impression that Barry also wanted us to know the
reason he chose to leave. Even though I don`t think this alone is a
reason for remarks, I do believe it to be a good topic for discussion.

PS. In time, I found my current postdoc position here

    Dear Tony,

    I think that all Barry requested was to be removed from the list, not
    that we discontinue the notices of available positions. I think we
    can honor his request without eliminating the job notices, which I
    agree are very useful.
