For example, I just received a notification from an outsourcer offering a messy "fix it" project at a rate that makes it clear to me that I never want to hear from them again. Is there a way I can check a box that says "ignore all job postings from this outsourcer"?

You can do this, but not in a way that would make it worth bothering Oct 30, 2006

I discovered that there is a way to do this, but quite honestly, it is so inconvenient that it is easier to suffer through possible future postings.

Here is how it _should_ work:

1. You get an e-mail notification.
2. You click on the job posting link.
3. You decide the "poster" (as the outsourcer is called here) is worthless...
4. You click the "Don't notify me of jobs from this outsourcer" button that is located within the online job posting you are viewing.

Done.

I won't bother telling you how it works now as it is too bothersome to be worthwhile (IMO). Differing opinions welcome, of course.

Have you tried the Jobs dashboard? Oct 30, 2006

Hi Kevin,
Have you tried the flags and filters function in the Jobs dashboard?

Best regards,
Ralf

Hi Ralf,

Yes, I have; you'll find my opinion of it (with respect to this feature) in my second post in this thread. I also describe one way that a "do not show this poster" feature _could_ be done in a useful and efficient way.
