    See, that doesn't make any sense to me. Isn't this board designed for fellow journalists to provide feedback on job openings?

    It's obvious that you don't approve of this job, which makes it obvious that you know something others don't. What specifically is wrong with it? I'm not going to apply -- I don't nearly have enough experience -- but what about for those others who will?

    Rhouston, you're reading way, WAAAAAY too much into this. Relax.

    If I had an agenda, I wouldn't have posted the listing. My current duties put me in contact with a couple people who work there and someone who used to work there.

    I wrote "posted without comment" because I don't know how much it pays or some of the other nuts-and-bolts questions that pop up. I get SBD and whenever job listings come up, I post them because some people on this board may be interested. In fact, one board denizen got a job there off of this.

    Frankly, I think it sounds like a good gig for someone qualified. So relax.

    Rhouston, that sort of posting is standard issue around here. What makes this board hum is that at any one time there are usually many listings, and we'll take 'em however we can get 'em.

    The person starting the thread is under no obligation to comment. If someone else knows something, they'll say so. Otherwise the listing will stand alone. And that's fine too.

    OK, we're good. Sorry for questioning. But by saying "posting without comment" followed by an ellipse, it kind of triggered the "stay away" mentality.

    And there are people who have agendas who post jobs in this forum, so it's tough to distinguish between the remarks at times.

    Birdie has posted other jobs on here before and has elaborated on the place before. He's very much a stand-up guy. On this and many other issues.

    What's there to know? It's a desert. It's hot. And the wind blows. Not that difficult. ;) (Hi Bird!)
