Hang on a sec, one OT mail has now become 23 completely OT mails.
My first point is that she actually apologised before anything was said to her
First line of her original post :> "Please forgive the intrusion".
At least she is polite which is more than can be said for people here.
Now I also have to argue over the use of the term "very inappropriate". We have
just finished having a discussion about what we should call a couple of dogs.
Surely a mail regarding a Job to a list of technical people is more
appropriate than that. I am also worried that people can advertise only Linux
jobs on this list. I was under the impression that this was a list for people
who liked/used/ wanted to promote Linux not fanatics who would not work
in a situation without it. Only one thing would have to be done to make her post
perfectly acceptable to this list, put an [OT] in the subject. We have had
far less relevant discussions in the past, speaking of which the color of the
walls in my cube are blue and there are four of them.
Peter - make that 25 OT mails.
