My 2p worth!

I have to agree with David. I have posted several job adverts on this 
list and not just for positions in my Lab but also those of 
colleagues. It has proved especially useful in cases where a 
prospective employer is after a cytometrist but doesn't know where 
else to advertise. Also, as David said, those of us on here may know 
someone who is right for a post and we wouldn't have any other way of 
knowing that such a post was available. Its a passive absorption 
rather than an active process.

I may have missed a post but I presume this is a conscious decision? 
Steve, Paul, any comments?
