Personally I'm against using a seperate moderated list for Job
postings.  I think it would significantly reduce the number of job
postings coming through, even if it did up the quality a little.  To
be honest, most employers look at a list like PLUG as more of an after
thought (Hey we've got a job and it's usin teh intarwebz lets git us
some of dem talent Linux folks over on teh plug list)
And if you raise the bar you're going to stop what may be very
interesting jobs from coming through and doing so based solely on the
writing skills of the person relaying the job info, who may or may not
be the person actually looking for someone to fill the slot.
