Bioinformatician for Hire
- Have we not addressed your particular requirements above? This unique service is designed with you in mind.
I also propose that posting a "job offer" requires a "real name account" and a minimum reputation.
This looks like spam to me. Where is the concrete job offer or position?
I think this post doesn't satisfy the requirements for a post in the Job category and should therefore be deleted, following the link is not advised due to spamming.
This is a new situation but perhaps the Job category could be for offering employment or offering services. I looked at the website but I did not think it was anything suspicious about it.
No objections? Then be it.
The author originally posted it in News but I reclassified it as Job since that seemed to be the best place for it - so it would not be right to delete it for that reason.
Ok, sorry I didn't know that, but let me put that straight: it is a commercial add or best a job request, even though for a possibly young start-up we could be sympathetic to. There is no concrete job on offer here. My feeling was that it was not suitable content, and it has been communicated earlier that - for example - job requests were not appropriate. Anyway we should make clear rules for this case and then stick to them and not just change the rules whenever it feels right, or we know or like that person.
Also, I would wish for adds to be clearly marked as such, in case we allow them, and that the responsible representative should be identifiable by a named account.
There is a parallel we can draw - say someone develops a tool and posts it in the tool section. I think it would be acceptable even if the said tool cost money and the author/seller of the tool posted the content. The condition is to only post it once. An ad would be something that is presented in a way that changes the natural order of things.
Another example. The author of the CAMDA conference logged in every week and changed some parts of the post just to get it rise to the top of the lists. That is not okay and he/she has been warned about it. Similarly posting about a for profit bioinformatics conference would be okay (not that CAMDA is one) but not manipulating the rankings.
