While sending one's resume to 1500+ people may not be a bad
thing :-), it may also be important to remind people that
just doing a "reply" or "send" to a list email will send the
mail to the list. To send it to the individual, you have to
edit the "To:" field before you send it out. I think this
little detail has escaped some members (myself included) in
the past.
