You make a valid point. Eric did try to solve the problem by suggesting
some subjects/headings (e.g. JOB, HELP, etc) and I think this tip comes in
the Signature at times. However, nobody bothers with such headings. I
suggest job/contract posters have a prefix to their subject as:Job or
Contract, the location and details. E.g.

Subject: JOB Guam: Doc Mgr with 7 yrs experience
Subject: Contract Bombay: 3 months -- Accounts User Manual
Subject: SLOVENIA: Job or Freelance, Banking Experience

One more courtesy is to: never put a list address in the CC field. When a
list address is in the CC field, the filter fails to put the list messages
in their separate folders and they all get mixed in the Inbox.
