"Why, yes I am..."

[ #2301 ]

Please do not post jobs where you are not offering compensation in the form of actual money (cash, check, wire transfer, whatever). We are not interested in jobs where compensation is in the form of valueless stock, goodwill, free pizza, or swift kick in the rear.

disgruntled hack

Well, I thought my sig made it pretty clear!

For those curious this was from someone named Ken Roberts at "" (Yahoo email address for job contact is a bad sign, I think). The job is (of course) no longer listed on
