yes, this job ad was inappropriate.

IIRC, the guidelines regarding job ads were discussed here a few
months ago (around the beginning of the year?). I think the general
consensus was that intermittent Linux-specific job ads, marked with
the word JOB in the subject, preferably from active SLUGgers (read:
anyone who helps others out, posts to the list, or goes to meetings
every now and then), preferably not worded with headhunting
hyperbole ("opportunity of a lifetime" etc. etc.), are ok.
Further, the guidelines should mention that a better solution for
both employers and job seekers is http://www.linux.org.au/jobs/.
Any other suggestions? is this too broad or too narrow?
