At the risk of opening this can of worms again, can we not do
something about these vague recruiter job descriptions? They seem to
be more prevalent over the past month or so. The previous discussion
seemed to be heavily biased against having recruiters post at all; the
posting guidelines (http://lrug.org/posting-jobs) seem pretty clear
about not posting job adverts like the one below, which tell me
absolutely nothing about the company.

My vote would be a warning followed by banning from the list for
people who blatantly ignore these guidelines if this is not too much
work to administer. To be clear, I'm not against job postings, I'm
against postings like the one below.
