Are'nt you failing your own advice? You re-post the idiot's message and
address and then address a message to him. He isn't listening!

I have learned, from you I thought, to simply ignore these things.

I see your point. However, (a) I quoted only a few lines of the
message, (b) the poster probably thought his ad was relevant to C, so
he might read followups here, and (c) my reply could possibly serve as
a reminder to others not to post job ads here. (That last is
admittedly a weak point; anyone who would post a job ad to comp.lang.c
is unlikely to have been following the group.)

The ad appeared to be a targeted but inappropriate article, not a
widely posted spam. If I had thought it was spam, I certainly would
have ignored it.

But yes, it might have been better to contact the poster directly by
e-mail.

There are certain posters who feel it is their duty to repeat the same
rubbish time & time again and pollute the newsgroup yet more. They feel
the "rules" (their rules) dont apply to themselves. Ignoring an article
when there is a chance to see their name in lights is not an option.

Tedious isn't it?

There are even posters here who *only* post reprimands about articles
being "off topic" or "c++ being down the corridoor second left".

Cringeworthy stuff.

There may be, but I'm not one of them, and I've already acknowledged
that it might have been better if I'd ignored this particular posting.
I'm human. I make mistakes.

As do we all. Would that we were all so capable of acknowledging them and
learning from them.

Name one.
Here, though, I think Richard <rgrdevis on firmer ground, although his
"*only*" is, I believe, an exaggeration. Certainly there are those in the
group who appear to post disciplinary messages more often than they post
good, solid, technical replies to topical questions.

Maintaining topicality *is* important. Occasional larting of top-posters
doesn't do much harm, either. But comp.lang.c's share of such things does
seem to be rather excessive at times, and that excess can be laid at the
door of a very few people.

And, this just in, the sky is blue.

I try to maintain a set of sigs to cover the common sins and why
and how to avoid them.

What is the etymology of 'lart'? Is it a Briticism?

No, it's a hackerism, an acronym for "Luser Attitude Readjustment
Tool". See <http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/L/LART.html>.
("Luser" is slang for a user who is also a loser.)

You say that as if there were users that weren't losers. Not very BOFH
of you.
