Easy solution to that, I'd say. Anyone can put up a job, but if it's not
from a principal i.e. the company offering the job, there is a fee charged.
Jobs not from principals must be vetted and I'd envisage that being done in
a similar way to group moderated lists - jobs to be vetted would be put in a
password protected area, and whenever a new such job came in, those on the
vetting list would get email. If any such had the time or inclination at
that point, s/he could go to the web site, access the unvetted listing, and
approve or reject. The vetters would get a proportion of the fee (I'm
thinking that it would cost £50 (too much ?) to list, and the vetter would
get £5 of that i.e. the price of a couple of pints for a few minutes work.)
Approved listings would be posted immediately (I though of waiting until
payment cleared, and we could change to that, but we could just as easily
blackball non-payers - it hasn't cost us anything).
There's a little bit of Perl or PHP to be written, and I wouldn't see why
the person doing that couldn't receive some compensation from the fees.
