I understand.  I was looking at it solely from the perspective of those 
who may be unemployed and are looking for jobs in this tough economy.  I 
am simply forwarding what I think are relevant postings.  I am not 
creating these postings.  So, trying to find out the specifics of the 
job just so that every ``t'' is crossed would be extra work.  IMO, if a 
person is interested, they will follow up with the contact.  If the 
person doesn't want to do that, they can ignore the post.  (That is what 
I would do if I am unemployed and looking for a job.)

But it does not seem like it will work with this LUG.  So, it is best 
for me to refrain from posting.

Rick, I understand that you are enforcing policy set by someone else. 
Perhaps whoever set this policy can chime in.
