Yeah, that's the basic problem. You can kinda get around it the way some vendors can get around the no-commecial postings rule, which is to couch it as a minor point in a group-appropriate post (like ). I'd think it ought to be legitimate to make a post like yours, "hey, check out the marketplace post," but I've seen how quickly and voluminously that will get abused by headhunters, to the point of killing useful newsgroups. It's already a problem here even with the explicit prohibition and several zealous netcops. I know it can seem ridiculous compared to the completely off-topic spam, but that's life in the intertubes. Glad you got helpful email, sorry it has to be in spite of the rules.

Did not know that. I'd joke about caring, but it would be misinterpreted.
