Speaking as someone who has been unemployed for a while now, I personally 
cannot afford to pick and choose.  I personally think that any IT or CS 
related jobs should be allowed on vox-jobs.  Its not like there's 30-40 posts 
a day, and as I said, I cannot afford to be choosy.  You can also look at it 
this way.  If someone gets the job and has a linux background, then they have 
the ability to preach the gospel from inside(poor choice of words, but I 
don't feel very well, and am trouble thinking of a better way of putting 
that.)  I'm sure you know what I mean.

Personally, I cannot afford to ignore ANY job no matter if its via vox list or 
the purple jellybean mailing list.  But I can see why people may not want to 
see this on vox, so my vote is for vox-jobs...
