I take the bug is showing a job for a company located in Berlin. – kiamlaluno Apr 5 '12 at 23:36
The bug is clearly Kalamazoo. What a silly name! – Ben Brocka Apr 5 '12 at 23:48
@BenBrocka - It's even better when you say it Kalamazoozoozoozoozoozoo. – Kevin Vermeer Apr 6 '12 at 0:54
Obviously, MasonWheeler is a misbehaving spambot. Why else would you live in "BotHell"? – jadarnel27 Apr 6 '12 at 18:02
@Jadarnel27: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bothell,_Washington. It's pronounced like "brothel" without the R, and I don't actually live there, but it's not too far from where I do live. Probably my Internet traffic is being routed through there by my ISP. – Mason Wheeler Apr 6 '12 at 18:05
That is a fantastic explanation of how to pronounce that city's name. – jadarnel27 Apr 6 '12 at 18:30

1 Answer 1

We don't always show you jobs in your area, they just have a much higher probability of showing up. We do this to make sure you get some exposure to jobs in other areas and so jobs in areas without a lot of traffic get some impressions.
