Is this the result of someone testing on the production environment? If not, I'd suggest filtering out job listings like "das @ dasd" and "test by matt @kdsk;sdkl;"

Uh oh. I see a "test" badge coming :) although this is arguably a really minor lapse. Stuff like this has happened to me numerous times. – Pëkka Jan 22 '12 at 17:30

Thanks for the report, Nico. Matt was testing some stuff in Prod a while ago and the data was hidden. Matt then refactored the "Jobs Near You" section of the homepage on Friday and the data became un-hidden.

The test data will be deleted. Beatings have been scheduled. A "PublishStatus == 1" badge is being fabricated.

This'll be fixed with the next push.

Couldn't we administer the beatings via that RC robot thingy you guys have? – Pëkka Jan 22 '12 at 22:34
@Pekka: Rovio's kind of a weakling in the beating department...we might need some specialized machinery for this. – Jason Punyon Jan 22 '12 at 22:43
@Pekka: YES YES YES. – Jason Punyon Jan 22 '12 at 22:52
+1, we want to see the badge! :) – bevacqua Jan 22 '12 at 22:54
