Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On one job posting, for instance, it says:

posted on 2 weeks ago

If you're using relative dating, the "on" should probably be omitted.

I don't know why we need relative dates anywhere, to be honest. I can perform date arithmetic and figure out that 2012-09-06 was two weeks ago, if I want to think about it that way. Most of the time, I don't. That said, this grammar check should be pretty simple... – Aaron Bertrand Sep 20 '12 at 12:54
I agree that in general relative dating is relatively useless (ha). That said, on job postings is one place where I can see its utility. – cori Sep 20 '12 at 15:14

This is handled and will go out with the next push later today.
