Oh my gosh — same!!! I never could agree with LinkedIn’s horrific UX, but the continuous spam and “cold dating” is what really throws me off. It’s seriously like a dating site! Because of that I’ve got over 2K requests that I haven’t responded to because anytime I take a chance to accept one, I either get spammed or hit on. Completely understand where you’re coming from and glad to hear it’s not just me.
