Of course, by that token, posting /anything/ to the list which might
cause someone to complain to heanet would incur the same issue.
Since www.linux.ie the website also happens to be dagda.tuatha.org which
is where the list is hosted.
Therefore if it's OK, to post email about jobs to the list, using
bandwidth paid for by heanet, it is /logically/ equivalent to have a
webpage dedicated to the same function.
Of course Logic!=Reality, where your point is salient. Somebody might
complain about a webpage, though absurdly, not complain about an email.
