Re: [ruby-81] meet 14 world-class junior developers at Hack Reactor's hiring day 4/4

This is a very low-traffic group except for some occasional discussions like this, and I don't have a problem using my delete key where appropriate.

I'd place the recruiting and random-conference things in separate categories: the recruiting things might have some interest for folks on the list who have some skills besides ruby (although point taken about the agency spamming). It's possible that the conference things could be appropriate as well, but I haven't seen that lately. I'm also on the svandroid list, and there are occasional conference notices that come up there that are only peripherally related, but they are interesting enough that I've been able to forward them to others who have appreciated the notice.

If possible, I'd suggest banning iphonebootcampnyc.com from the mailing list.

It's hit and miss. In the last 40 new topics on this group, I count 8 of them that were blatant recruiting or sales (buy this new book! attend this random conference!) posts. It's hard to shut out the tech recruiter trolls completely. If they find a medium to spam to more than 1 person at a time, they will use it. Some aren't as disgusting as the others, but they are all irrelevant if you ask me. If you unsub here and go elsewhere, you'll have the same problem unless the list mod enables active user signups, and is adamant about removing the recruiters and other spammers from the list. It's kind of a pain in the ass to ask someone doing this list on the side to take up even more time and actively moderate signups.

If you see spam from a recruiter, report that person to the recruiting company they work for. Sometimes they are doing whatever it takes to get that commission in the bank and it may not be (but usually is) in line with the company policies. Also block their domain from your mail box -- not only will you no longer see their spam here, but you'll also block it from your other lists. And finally tell your peers to avoid them like the plague. Why would anyone want to get placed by a recruiter who is posting iOS developer positions in the Linux and AutoCad lists? I have a huge list of them -- about half of the recruiters in SF I'd imagine, so far :)

Now if I could only figure out how some of them got my direct work line and are calling me with "amazing opportunities!" .... or why I even HAVE a phone in this day and ages :)

Not sure, Tania; I'll check it out. 

Generally our email list has been quite clean as folks looking for developers - including recruiters -  post on the meet up board...Jon

is this a ruby programming group or tech recruiter venue? I wonder if there's a way to separate these pretty different interests or if I have to unsubscribe from here...
