Re: [jsmn] [JOB] Globant (now a known SPAMMER) is looking for a Web UI Developer in Minneapolis, MN!

I agree with Tony.  I'll add:

1) Enable the option to actively moderate all new subscribers:
2) If available, crank up the number of days that new users have to wait before they can post without moderation.  LinkedIn and some other forums have this option, so I hope Meetup does, too.
3) If Meetup.com has a "Jobs" option for this group:
  a)  Enable it.
  b)  Tell all current members that they are welcome to post jobs, but ONLY to the jobs section, and NEVER to the discussions area, PERIOD.
  c)  Update the welcome page and email so that all newcomers are welcome to post jobs, but ONLY to the jobs section, PERIOD.
4) Require permanent moderation of any individuals that email jobs or off-topic posts. BAN attempted repeat offenders.
5) Remove all job postings from the discussions area on the Meetup.com website.  Otherwise posting is still benefiting the sender, even if they are thrown off.
6) If Meetup doesn't have the options I've listed above, then I consider it the wrong tool for managing this kind of community.
7) Always include time at the JavaScript user group for Jobs and other announcements.  If a recruiter is willing to make the attempt to come out and sit through a meeting, I don't mind job announcements.

-My 2 bits.

Over at Ruby.MN we:

- Moderate group signups, with a question asking if they are a recruiter
- Moderate first-time posters. This usually prevents "hit and run" job postings by technicall recruiters.

If the job description doesn't involve Ruby, we'll usually nuke the message and remove the person from the list. It's worked out quite well, I think, and I've only had to yell at a couple people.

I also usually encourage people who are hiring to show up at the meetings and actually network with the local ruby community.

Can we charge them to post and then have a lottery for who gets the money? I plan on hiring a node.js dev in the future, and if we can keep this list curated yet accessible that seems win/win.

I agree, this is getting to be too much.

My initial thought is to create another opt-in communication channel for JS related jobs.  Seem reasonable?

Grrr...

I'm pretty close to abandoning this mailing list.

I don't mind the occasional job posting. This one is useless though. What is this job for? What are the requirements, responsibilities? Nothing? Can we at least have a link to a posting? No?

I'm just curious if this list will continue to be 90% recruiter spam. If so I'm sorry but I'm going to be leaving. As I said, job postings are fine (as long as they have value, unlike this one) but that's not what I'm interested in.

Thanks,

Chad
