I never suggested that this was the clients range of salary.

I'm very experienced at recruiting for open source positions and
recruitment in general. I recruit genuine positions and always meet
candidates and clients first or have thorough conversations with them.
I really would like to work with the list and continue to post and would
welcome the list to listen to me when I suggest that salary ranges are
in my experience of being a recruiter are never fixed and as I've tried
to suggest if I indicate a particular salary it means that those outside
of this range don't contact me when in all fairness the client would pay
this for the right person.  Maybe I should have prefaced my posts with
something like: "Don't be put off by the salary - whether you consider
it too high or too low - if the job interests you, please get in

If people are reading my posts about jobs I don't understand why they
cant just email me and express an interest and then ask what the salary
is rather than create a lot of traffic on the list and perhaps some
people may be creating a fuss but not have relevant experience? I don't
know if that is the case or not.

All in all I really don't think I will ever post another job to the list
again.  This will be unfortunate for some members as I am sure that they
would like to see the odd post from time to time.
