re: LinkedIn Tip: How To Undo Contact Imports, Invitations
I have to wonder if one of two things could have happened:

#1 - was here an aggressive LinkedIn employee who went beyond TOS and used member contact info improperly?

#2 - Did these members not pay attention and errantly sent out LinkedIn connect requests (with LinkedIn marketing info attached) to their contacts?

I hope it's not a deliberate LinkedIn failure.

At the same time that they send it easy to send large #s of invitations, LinkedIn will also suspend your account if you're too aggressive about it - if too many of the people receiving the invitations decline them and say they don't know you. I confess I know this because I've stepped over the line on occasion (in my experience, apologizing to the LinkedIn support desk for these issues was enough to get myself rehabilitated). Much as you'd like to grow your LinkedIn network, it does pay to be selective and build a quality professional network.
