Why is it bad?

Lawyers, 99% of the time are pieces of crap. But on occasion, they have their uses.

FFG posts job openings in this fashion constantly. This is no more than a coincidence, I'd guess. FFG like any other large company that deals with licensing outside IP keeps a legal staff as standard operation.
No need to fan the flame.

Yes and my fear is that use is to write cease and desist letters to stronghold games.

Most likely you are right but if so the timing is bad.

Sorry if I am a few threads behind, I must have missed it. Their site says it was published today (Published 24 October 2011)

The timing is only bad because BGG likes to see conspiracies around every corner. They're so evil!

No big deal, and I wouldn't bother catching up if I were you. You're not missing a thing. Weird that it was posted today; I could swear the other mention was before that.

The job listing was posted in their news section today. It's been posted in their jobs section for a little while now - I think before any of this Merchant of Venus stuff started. I suspect they just announced it in their news section because they hadn't gotten enough (or maybe any) applications and wanted to get more attention for it.

I think they just refreshed the posting today. It's in my news reader as having been posted on October 19th, before Stronghold made their announcement.

Maybe if they have more legal researcher checking out the contracts the MoV mess would have been avoided.

Lawyers are fine....you know which side they advocate and can respect that. But don't get me started about forensic DOCTORS, many of them are corrupt as hell.
