Re: [jsmn] [JOB] Globant (now a known SPAMMER) is looking for a Web UI Developer in Minneapolis, MN! - I think having the organizers (aka you) moderate job postings will increase the S:N ratio enough, that the once-per-month post may not be necessary (finding out about a job potentially up to a month after it's been posted is suboptimal) Tony C.
