I guess you thought it was alright because of all the other job postings you saw here?
OP didn't know if it was alright, that's why they asked. Also, not everyone knows all of the questions that have been asked here before.

    Doesn't mean they can't search first to see if it's alright, does it? And it would have been polite to make the subject less obviously a job posting.

    Could've asked in the Chatterbox first.

      I don't think it fosters stewardship to hold someone accountable for wrongdoing when they are merely asking if an action is appropriate. As was mentioned in an earlier reply, jobs.perl.org is an appropriate place to post job listings. If the OP didn't know that, how would they have found out? Do you suggest that every poster ask if a question is apporpriate in the chatterbox before posting? Doing so, in my opinion, reduces the value of this site tremendously.

        It's impolite to ask a question without doing research yourself first.

        It is a general principle that you search for yourself first before asking in a public forum, and well documented all over the Internet.

        Wasting the time of everyone reading your question, when it is already answered elsewhere, is what reduces the value of this site, and every other public place.

        ...merely asking if an action is appropriate.

        No argument there; but that's not what happened. It was "Here's a job ad... And oh, btw, sorry if this isn't appropriate; but I can't be bothered to find out how this site works first."

        We're building the house of the future together.
