Shame on you LinkedIn

Not content with mismanaging password security a few months ago I see LinkedIn is still duping people into providing access to their email lists and then spamming with an appropriate sales pitch. A little unethical I think, as do several of the victims.

The only reason I haven’t been caught in their trap is that I am aware of this practice (and it’s not just LinkedIn)

No big deal ?  Imagine emails sent to old partners, old bosses, lawyers, friends, lovers, indeed anyone they have EVER emailed.  For teachers this includes their students past and present, parents of students past and present. (It is not a good idea to be connected to current students and their parents.)

Frankly, shame on you LinkedIn.
