Over the years, I have never posted "help wanted" or "position available"
messages in comp.compilers on the theory that there is a perfectly good
group,, intended for them.

I've been getting more such messages than I used to, one or two per week,
so I wonder whether I should reconsider my policy. As an alternative, I
might post one digest message per week containing the help wanted messages
that arrived during the week. Would people prefer this? Send me a note
and let me know. If I don't get a lot of support for change, I'll leave
things as they are.

PS: I have no sympathy at all for the theory advanced by some people that
they don't want to use because anyone who reads it must
be a total loser.
