How does an asshole sound, anyway? (i.e. please avoid that word). Adam's right, as I see it. Bruce's mail didn't belong on -devel . When he chose to post anyway, he didn't prefix his subject with OT:, and on top of that, top-posts his answers . Correct me, if any of this is wrong. As I see it, Bruce's posting to -devel should be considered harmless, but that does not change the fact that it didn't belong here. Job opportunities are not a technical development topic. What about creating a dd-contact(at)lists.debian.org-list, so outsiders have a channel of communication to the people who reads -devel? Regards, Anders Breindahl.  http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel: Discussion about technical development topics.  Yes, I know that there is no homogeneous opinion on this. I found it worth mentioning.
