It is the first time I've noticed open recruiting on the site (Perl Jobs - the AM one, although the other is relevant as well, I guess) and I think its a bad direction for things to go in.
in reply to New jobs section
This has been discussed before in Employment Status, and I'm sure elsewhere as well.
IMHO, I think a jobs section should be created where people can look at these sort of posts if they want to (perhaps only visible via an option on the home node?). I don't really think that this is the correct forum for that sort of thing, but by creating an area for it the rest of the site will hopefully not be 'contaminated' by recruiters.
