An interesting perspective, but can we tone down the pejorative
language and broaden our models of the users of this list? I
recognize that some people don't wish to receive job postings. But
others do. Referring to it as "damage" is unnecessary and unhelpful.
Furthermore, applying "strikes" to people who post jobs - which is to
say do a service that helps members of our community - is further
disparaging and unhelpful. Although this service is not useful to you
that doesn't make it automatically evil.
