Hi Everyone – a question that comes up periodically is whether job adverts should be allowed in News & Comment, or whether we should put them somewhere else (e.g. their own job ads group).
Occasionally we’ve had feedback from engaged TalkPhysics members who feel that they don’t belong there. What are your opinions?
My own opinion, so far, is that provided they remain a minority of the News & Comment posts then, just like in our PTNC email list, they do belong – they are time-limited items which may be of interested to quite a few people. They have a different nature than, for instance, people trying to advertise their self-published resources or commercial products (both of which we try to keep out of there). However, I’m open to persuasion.
