I am tantalized by the question: "Is it ethical for somebody outside the
University to use a University mailing list and State computers to raid the
university of its talent"?
On the other hand, the university maintains a career placement office for its
graduates and many people on this list are students. This mailing might be
construed in the same way as state spending on a placement office.
However, the shortage of qualified sysadmins here at the UW is well known.

Does anybody else worry about such considerations?
