which I positted in response to dragonchild's apparent assertion that Perlmonks had an affirmative obligation to encourage entrepreneurship. With which assertion I (as you might guess) disagree.
Okay, well, I agree with you there. I don't think that Perlmonks has any obligation to encourage entrepreneurship.
I really am thinking a jobs section would be a good idea though. And I'm finding more and more fault with all the arguments against. The transient/permanent issue, for example. All we'd have to do is leave job postings out of search results. (Unless someone is searching specifically for them via Super Search in which case they'd get ordered by newest-first by default.) Most nodes on here are probably never revisited anyway, so the real value of their permanence isn't much... but we keep them anyway. So, I don't see a big deal about keeping more nodes around even if they do have near zero long term value.
