I took it as a little off-topic humor. They were looking for a "Customer
Satisfaction Engineer" with 10 years of experience in Windows. I had to
wonder if they required a B.S. in Customer Satisfaction or an M.S.

And it was an on-topic post, in the sense it was for a computer
technician. Some of my best friends work, however regretfully, with
Windows on a daily basis. I'd rather have an employed Linux enthusiast.

I prefer not burdening the mailing list moderators unnecessarily. But if
you want to play gatekeeper, I appreciate it.
