Re: [soaplite] Do you want me to approve job postings?
- My personal experience with this is that it doesn't turn out to be a lot of volume, and so doesn't detract from the conversation. They approve them on the perl mongers groups that I am a part of, and even if you aren't looking right at that moment I find relevant job postings to be of at least passing interest.
If a lot of people object you could possibly add [job] to the subject line and let them filter.
Although it is true that at any given time the people looking for work (fortunately) are vastly outnumbered by those who are not, we might consider in this case that the needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many, in the sense that I don't mind a little inconvenience for 100 people if it will help the 1 person who is out of a job and depleting his savings. (I know, I know--Ayn Rand is spinning in her grave. Sorry.)

and I am the person who sent a job posting that wasn't approved, but
I agree. :)
I've always found it useful for the lists I am on, even when I'm not
looking for a position at that time. Like Mike, the perl mongers
groups are some I am a part of that I have gotten some interesting
Plus, knowledge of SOAP::Lite is pretty specialized, and this is one
of the best places to get access to these folks. It'd be a shame for
anyone looking for a job not to find out about ones that are that
well matched to their skills and interest. SOAP::Lite is a great
piece of software - one which I've provided bug reports / hack-level
fixes for before - and for which I've commended Byrne - albeit under
a different alias than I am using for a job posting for the company I
