also forward them to return path.. certification@returnpath.net they
get paid to 'certify' that linked in isn't spamming.

enough complaints, and they will stop (unless linked in pays them a
lot.. they we go back to argument about SA scoring all these high
scoring spammers just because linked in pays return path to ignore
complaints).. and, yes, I have gone round and round with return path
about linked in.

they say I must have signed up.. (I said prove it), they could not. it
was a harvested spamtrap address. they said, well, these are not UCE,
they are 'transactional' since it wasn't selling anything, just inviting
me to join. (join what? linked in? a 501C3 non profit charitable
organization? ).. no, a commercial organization.

no, return path should de-certify linked in until they have a button
like the others have' click here to report abuse' /and/or click here to
never get invitations again.
