Brief Plug

WHOA, the vol­un­teer orga­ni­za­tion that I work for is recruit­ing Inter­net Safe­ty Advo­cates. We’re hop­ing to get peo­ple out­side the US—we have sev­er­al peo­ple here in the US already. We’re look­ing for peo­ple with good tech­ni­cal and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills to help peo­ple who are being harassed online.

Part of the job involves judg­ment calls as to what is and isn’t harassment—sometimes peo­ple report spam think­ing they’re being tar­get­ed for spe­cial harass­ment. At oth­er times you’d be help­ing them fig­ure out the ori­gin of an email or Usenet mes­sage and who to com­plain to about those, or a par­tic­u­lar web­site or mes­sage board or chat room. 

WHOA does­n’t prac­tice ANY kind of dis­crim­i­na­tion. We accept vol­un­teers and vic­tims of any race, reli­gion, eth­nic­i­ty, sex­u­al pref­er­ence, etc. 

The dead­line for appli­ca­tions is mid­night EST on August 5, 2002.
