Exactly in what way did "no blacks or no irish (this carried on long after 
no blacks was stopped" represent a genuine aspect of the job?

The fact is that there are jobs that are well suited to people who are 
younger or less experienced due to the nature of the job. You will note 
that the actual posting causing this stated young OR less experienced.

Similarly there are jobs that are better suited to older or more 
experienced people. Should those be required to be advertised in a 
misleading manner to?

I think I'd rather see ads that honestly reflect the job rather than ones 
that pander to stupid PC interpretations.
