Funny. But that kind of job posting tells me [a disabled person who cannot
do that stuff, even a little] not to even try to apply.

Maybe there is a legal reason, a reasonable and defensible legal reason,
for including that line, I do not know.

OTOH perhaps the organization could in general use a talented writer who
just happens to be disabled, but for the particular position they want to
exclude the disabled, for whatever reason [there might even be a good
reason].
