To Keith: That's exactly what I am saying - they post identical or similar
job ads without really intending to hire - so one of the reasons is to make
an implied announcement "We're in business, we're even growing! See? we need

To Leonard: These corporate executives are not really evil - they simply
have an agenda that does not look attractive. Nothing personal, folks, they
are only doing their jobs. ;-)
