That, I think, is the problem. Even if there are no job postings here,
you have to assume that potential clients lurk here. Some of us are
both client and consultant at times -- for example, when we subcontract.
There's a saying I love: "There's no such thing as a secret that two
people know." That's especially true on the Internet.
Personally, I could go either way (well, that too ;) ) regarding
whether ads stay or not. I don't mind seeing them here, but I know I
can go to http://groups.drupal.org/jobs if they disappear.
This whole issue makes me kind of nostalgic for the dotcom boom. :) I
was involved in the Silicon Valley Linux User's Group around 1999, and
the place was *crawling* with employers. Nice. :)
BTW, Ryan, thanks for putting forth your argument so civilly. Cheers,
