Sheesh — BT nicely posts a job opportunity and you guys are razzing her post.

I don't think her post is a referendum on the Sierra Club but rather a simple favor regarding an available job.

People like the Serria Club will only hurt the enviroment in the long run. Anyway, I am sorry,  I hope I didnt effect anyone on this forum from taking this job. I removed my comment, but left the picture.

I'm actually the head-honcho of Sierra Club & I'm deeply offended by your comments!!

Just kidding... cool the jets folks.  It's just a job announcement that came across my email and I thought people into "stewardship" might be interested in it or know others that might be interested...

That's all.

Not really interested in debating their hiring policies because I don't know a dang thing about them.
