I agree with you.  LinkedIn for me is a love/hate relationship.  The thing I
can't get over is the endorsements..anybody can go on there and just keep
hitting endorse, endorse, endorse..I can't see it being an option much

Hiya all.

Has anyone else noticed the option to see who else they know is connected on
Linked-in? Have you noticed that if you click on the outlook button it asks
you for your WORK EMAIL PASSWORD!!!!!

Bloody hell! It's not like the job of getting users to not submit this
information to other sites isn't already hard enough without this!!! The
"can't put brains in pumpkins " department must be having a field day over

Am I the only one that think this is a touch negligent on the part of
Linked-in? Or should I just accept that it is corporate facebook, accepts
that they have the dame moral fibre and move on?

Maybe I am expecting too much? Thoughts?
