I am not the admin, but have been on this list since 1994. Many of the top people from then are still here. The one-off announcements from working dba users (not recruiters) have always been allowed as long as the member doesn't abuse the privilege. Recruiters have generally been blocked with a couple of exceptions. Those that have been allowed worked specific arrangements with list admins as to what could be posted and how often and absolutely no address harvesting allowed type stuff. --Rodd Holman
