Re: [SC-WP-Meetup] amazing job opp Andrew, thanks for your follow-up. I agree that job opportunities benefit the group. I think they're an appropriate use of the message list, and I thank Shane for providing one. I do, think tone is a critical part of the message and has an impact on the morale of the group, and from Shane's and others' replies, I think we all appreciate that.

Frances,

Shane brought a job opportunity to the group that may not have yet been advertised. ?This is very helpful and valuable In this economy and job market. ?It is very important that we as a group strive to encourage the sharing of information like this regardless of?perceived?tone. ?

I am not trying to stick up for Shane but it is important to realize that Shane is not part of GigaOm an does not benefit directly from informing and facilitating this opportunity for any of us, rather it will take his energy and time to do so. ?Perhaps Shane could have been more tactful in the way he presented the seriousness of ? qualifications, but any response that would make him, or anyone else, think twice about bringing an idea or opportunity to the group hurts us all.

If you are insulted by Shane's tone, I can assure you that it was not intended to insult. ?I hope that in the future we can concentrate on intention of message rather than the tone of delivery.

Sincerely,
Andrew Mueller
