Hi Everybody,
May I make the following suggestion to deal with the objection of some
list members to receiving job notices?  People who were posting a job
or position opening could start the Subject line of their posting with
the phrase "Position available".  Those who didn't want to look at
such postings could just set up a filter in their email programs to
delete messages whose subject line contained this phrase or direct
such messages to a separate folder.
