in reply to Employment Status

Yeah, I'm a little leery about having a job posting area, because of the fear of attracting overly aggressive recruiters, and also because you get a lot of responses to one ad, and it sucks to have to turn down your fellow Monks.

I'd rather just be able to see if someone is looking for work; and if I like what I've seen on their posts on Perl Monks, I'll just send them a note directly.

Of course, this doesn't stop a recruiter from scanning all the user nodes and compiling a list of job seekers and then spamming them :(

Maybe you should only be able to view someone else's employment status after you've gotten to a certain level of XP.

    I think that there should be, as was originaly suggested, a kind of work state option on the home node, then job agencies wouldn't be such a problem - spamming would be confined to those who 'wanted' it.

[virtualsue]: weird. my p6 simple web spider fails to extract anchor tags from perlmonks.org
[holli]: Nice. Turns out I don't have to remove Sweet home Alabama from my playlist ;)
[Corion]: virtualsue: We have some links with a newline between <a and the attributes, maybe your extractor fails to handle that?
[virtualsue]: It's not getting any at all, which seems quite broken
virtualsue upgrades modules
[erix]: aka *falling forward*
[Corion]: virtualsue: That sounds weird... I don't think we do fancy stuff like chunked encoding or something. Maybe your DNS is unlucky and gets the low machine.
