1. Pardon me for not running this as a moderated list. I have a wife, life, job, and sleep at night. And we aren't a bunch of big babies who need to be watched over constantly, nor should we be so sensitive that we can't weather an unwelcome post or two without trying to shame the moderators.
2. The person in question probably did what many not-so-experienced do or have done - did the equivalent of "reply all" and sent an invitation to all addresses in his address book. He is now on moderation on this and any other lists I moderate where his invitation showed up.
3. The text and links you saw were all generated by LinkedIn. So if you don't agree with what was said about LinkedIn, you'll need to tell LinkedIn.
In the future, if you see something you feel is spam or off topic, please alert me to it by emailing me OFF LIST at:
