Here are my thoughts on that: a)First, employment is important to most individuals. If you happen to pair up someone needing a job with someone needing an employee ... it raises the quality of life for the individual who gets a job they like ... and I'm willing waste 30 seconds of my time a week reading job postings. b)Second, if it ends up that there isn't a better place to post MySQL jobs, you and others posting jobs (and the minor controversey it creates) will bring this oversight out in the open. Then, if it doesn't already exist, they might create a more formal mechanism for posting jobs. In other words, your job posting may be revealing an oversight in "the system", and I don't see any harm in bringing attention to this oversight. My suggestion is to continue unless you find a better MySQL-specific forum to post these jobs ... Dave A.
