Why Not Y!?

[My remarks can be shared with *or* without my personal data attached]

In my particular case, I did not have even the slightest interest in 
doing bugzilla dev then. (nor do I recall seeing the post).

However I still likely would not have applied for the job, as I do not 
have a desire to move permanently across the country (Live in MA right 
now) but should Yahoo! offer, even the chance at a "mostly" remote 
employment I'd be happy to reconsider that opinion.

By mostly I mean, I'm ok with a few weeks here and there needing to go 
for on-hands meetings, actual face-to-face, etc. But I have such a 
strong connection to my family whom all live around here that committing 
more time to a distant job is not worthwhile for me.

Hope that helps.
