A solution? (was Re: [socalrawfood] Professional Food Assembly Assistant

Hi, everyone. I would like to suggest a compromise between posting such announcements, which some people seem to think is a good idea and an appropriate use of meetup, and not posting them, that takes into consideration both sides of this issue:
1. Appropriate jobs or other relevant information specific to raw fooders may be posted on the meetup as succinctly as possible and with a descriptive subject line. For example, if you have a job to offer, start with Help Wanted. If you have a room to rent, start with something like, Housemate wanted.
2. If anyone is interested in responding, then simply reply to the sender and not to the whole list.
Personally, getting the original message is not a big deal, especially if it may be useful to some members. On the other hand, having my inbox cluttered with replies is annoying. Sure, they are easy enough to delete, but it is just as easy for those responding to reply to the original sender.
I hope that works for everyone, or at least most of us.
