re: How To Manage LinkedIn Endorsements
My impression is that my connections can endorse me multiple times for the same skill. If LinkedIn were simply able to catch those and not alert me about these "re-endorsements", that would be a great help on cutting down the emails they send me.

re: How To Manage LinkedIn Endorsements
I still have mixed feelings on LinkedIn endorsements. While I have been endorsed for skills I possess (which I appreciate), I have also been endorsed for things I don't do GǪ by people who would have no idea whether I possess those skills. Glad to know how to remove those now, thanks!

I've had a different experience. For example, my top endorsed skill is "blogging"... and I don't blog.

Thanks for researching this, Kristin. I've got a bunch of endorsements on my profile that came from way out of left field. Great to be appreciated, but getting endorsed for skills I actually possess would be a lot better.

Actually, I kind of like the endorsement feature. When people reach out to me I see their profiles and it encourages networking. In the scheme of things, recommendations from people you have worked with are a much better barometer of capabilities and skills.
