Tara...this is not a poke at you, but it seems to me that this is a perfect
example of why it is a good thing that "just anybody" cannot post "Just any
opportunity" to the list feely and without meeting certain criteria. When ya
gotta pay to do it, there is a tendency to make sure it is completely legit.
