Debian's job is not to help people who think the world is unfair (was: Linux System Engineer (100%) in Zurich)

This is precisely my problem, it comes across as a statement from
Debian, when in fact it is the voice of a few people (who seem to
have little idea about HR and running a business). This is why
I replied on -jobs, because Debian does *not* have any policy
preventing or allowing job offers with age restrictions.

If you don't like the job offer, don't apply. If you want that job
but you are too old, convince them and go to court if you feel like
they are acting unlawfully.

But please refrain from calling it unfair (it's a bloody *offer*)
and expecting the project to do something about it.
