Why are old job listings being mass-updated and shows as new? I noticed this this morning, and I know it's happened before. A bunch (20+) of jobs on the jobs board were timestamped this morning, even though they all appear to actually be older postings. Do companies have the ability to update the timestamps on their postings? Or is this a side effect of some sort of system maintenance?
One of the (many) things that sucks about big job boards like Monster and CB is that very few of the "new" listings are actually new — their timestamps are just updated daily, creating an enormous headache for job seekers trying to browse only new listings. I would hope SO didn't allow this sort of thing on their job board.
