It is a requirement of your job to THOROUGHLY piss off an entire mailing
list full of people who may otherwise have entertained your offer?

Yes, the chances are that somewhere on this list there is someone who
meets your job requirements. By the time this list gets through
roasting you they'll almost certainly be loathe to accept a job

You may not have realised that the policy on this list is that you mark
any and all commercial postings (and only a limitted subset of commercial
postings are allowed; at a guess, those that don't piss people off) MUST
be marked as "For Sale" or similar. This is a list policy, and it is YOUR
responsibility to check that policy on ANY list before posting to it.

I'm vaguely tempted to suggest we adopt a "limit number of consecutive
exclamation marks permitted in topics" policy, too.
