RDP and Vaughn:

I'm surprised by some people's reaction to this excellent job offer.  
Schematic is a top notch firm that is now owned by WPP, the world's 
largest advertising/communications firm.  I hope Ms McNulty and her 
colleagues won't be discouraged from posting jobs here in the future.

That kind of thing is part of many job postings.  Employers generally 
want to hire the best people available.  So they're saying so.

nyphp-jobs is a mailing list that you chose to subscribe to, not a 
thread on some other list.

And that's exactly what Ms McNulty posted.

Some of the postings are short term.  Others, like this one, offer 
full-time positions.
