Dear Beau,

sorry for being brutally honest, but you should stop your activities  
as an open source recruiter - or get deeper into open source and not  
give the impression you're doing it, because it is now 'hip' or 'in'.  
It's (way) more.

This is a PostgreSQL joblist and NOT a MySQL joblist. If you do not  
know the difference you obviously are not qualified to fullfill your  
responsibility as an open source recruiter. Our mission is to match  
appropriate candidates to the open positions at our customers and not  
to spam mailing lists with irrelevant content.

By your multiple times demonstrated incompetence (especially on this  
mailing list), you're doing serious damage to the reputation of other  
open source recruiters who actually understand the nuances of  
different open source RDBMS and follow the wishes of the community.

An open source recruiter,

Lukas Chaplin
Linux Lancers
