This forum used to be sexist and is now turning fully racist.

Here is a plea to any sane remaining faculty member:

Encourage your chairs to keep the interview lists hidden next season.

Lots of traffic in this toxic webpage will be gone.

Any secret interview list can have a positive effect. The future faculty members won't need to join a new department feeling completely disillusioned and disappointed by the community and their colleagues. And all just because of some undergrads and other insecure people who were forced out of math.

A common cause of market failure is asymmetric information. Candidates lacking information about who else is being interviewed where is a much bigger problem than the fact that OMG PEOPLE ARE MEAN ON THE INTERNET.

Knowing where people interviewed didn't help me. Department chairs could be more transparent -- I see the benefit in that.

It is like a standard mathoverflow answer. This doesn't justify the existence of this website. The main reason MJR is toxic is that the majority of the users are not even relevant to the US academic job market. They are either students, non-mathematicians, or mathematicians somewhere else in the world.

[...]

There are some things of value here. I hadn't realized exactly how judgemental math folks are until I came here, nor did I have any sense of journals. These are both discussions worth having which people often don't indulge even during department tea (at least not in front of grad students like me).

Not that I have a sense of journals now, but at least now I know what "Top 5" means, and what journals are unambiguously good, and the fact that actually there's no consensus on most things when it comes to journals.

Why do undergrads here question committees comprised of experts with many years of experience? Let them evaluate their candidates as they wish. Surely Toronto has made great choices in the past. Why question their methods?

I just had the funniest picture of a hiring committee comprised of undergrads with years of experience reading mjr. It would be interesting to see how the department they would create would do.

Why do citizens here question politicians comprised of experts with many years of experience? Let them govern as they wish. Surely Congress has made great decisions in the past. Why question their methods?

No they didn't. Only some of them (maybe one person? did). Postdocs are hired differently in Canada.

So a handful have bad judgement, but you want us to believe the rest are all good.

I think IV hired PH as postdoc - not a decision made at departmental level. Nevertheless, remember Toronto also hired quasi-lemon Daniel Litt and let go a real deal like Vesselin Dimitrov.
