re: With Online Connections, Appearances Can Deceive
I think this same logic can apply to LinkedIn groups that you might manage. Sometimes it is hard to tell if someone simply wants access to your reputable group of contacts and to a platform for self-promotion or whether they legitimately want to connect. The fact that the group is set up for a specific topic/industry/area of interest makes it harder because anyone can list those topics on a LinkedIn profile and pass for someone who is legitimately a member of that industry.

My faulty memory for names often leaves me thinking, "Maybe I should know this person ..." even though I recognize nothing about them.

Thanks for sharing that lesson and advice David. I will pay closer attention to LinkedIn invites now!
