Job listings rarely include salary information. I don't see anything wrong with them guessing that certain jobs are above $100K.

So if the job title is "VP, Technology", it seems logical to include it in their site. The example in the way-too-long article is "Marketing Manager". Managers can make over $100K.

I don't see why he's so worked up by this. Except maybe they compete with him.

You wouldn't see a problem with them copying a job listing from your site, that originally had no salary info on it, and them slapping a guessed salary on the copy of the listing they show to their users? The users aren't told the salary they are looking at in the listing is a guess.
