A cursory examination of the posts in both lists suggests that he was
simply misusing the term "cross-posted."  To be truly cross-posted,
the message would have both the svlug and jobs lists on the TO: or CC:
lines.  But instead, a separate message appears to have been sent to
each list.

However, in future, job listings should not be sent to this list at
all.  Perhaps the language on the home page should not restrict it to
"recruiters, HR, or hiring managers" but instead should just ban all
job listings?
