    Hey Kim – thanks for the reminder. I'm going to do some clean up today. Quick question:
    have you had any issues with bogus requests for connection on LinkedIn? I'm getting about 8-10 each day all at the same time. The issue is that some of the faces are the same with different names and companies. I've sent a complaint into LinkedIn, but it's an ongoing problem.
    Just wondered if you have any any such problem.
