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.
