Yes, LinkedIn appears to be going the way of Facebook, forever changing
thing or prompting to do things that are unwanted.
Sad. It had a lot of potential, even recently I managed to get a contract
through a LI search.

What are the odds that more and more domains are going to do this?
Is this the latest rage that places will adopt?
Will this cancer be the death knell of mailing lists?

I also like Jon Paris' blog about LinkedIn.

Looks like AOL is joining Yahoo in a joint effort to destroy significant
parts of the internet.

According to this blog post:
, they are making the same change that Yahoo did. As such, this will
cause any posts by AOL users to be rejected by Gmail, Hotmail, Comcast,
Gmail, Yahoo, & AOL.

At the present time, my only course of action is to prevent AOL and Yahoo
users from being able to post to any lists.

If you use Yahoo or AOL, please consider switching to Gmail or Hotmail for mailing list subscriptions.

As always, if you have any questions, contact me at support@xxxxxxxxxxxx.
