My take on that is that a single job might be OK - in the vein of "we
have a job opening here, does anyone want to work alongside me", but
the nature of the initial email with lots of yahoo groups for jobs in
the footer gives me strong feeling that the poster is a headhunter or
a job agency, and if we allowed all of those to post here we might as
well filter the list to dev/null/.

Bad enough that once you have your mobile on monster you get calls all
the time asking if you don't want to work for the company that is the
first on your portfolio list and thus a conflict of interest with your
current employer :-)
