I wouldn't criticize an employer during an interview, so why would I do it
in response to a job post. Of course, the criticisms is really coming from
people who have jobs. The day they loose their jobs, they stop criticizing
job postings. Stop now! Don't wait.

If any employer stops posting to this list, everybody loses.

I don't mind employers who don't write well. That's what they pay me. The
worst employers are those that think they can write better than me, or
think that their writing doesn't need to be edited.
