[Foundation-l] Invitation to connect on LinkedIn

You don't have to have an account on LinkedIn to receive these emails.  We
were getting them sent to OTRS email addresses all the time before I asked
LinkedIn to block emails to the addresses.  Had to go through customer
service because they don't provide an opt-out link in the emails they send.
We still get some to a few addresses I asked to opt out of.  I thought I
also asked the list to be opted out as well, but potentially they received a
bounce email back and so disregarded the ticket.

The main concern is people need to stop uploading their contacts lists and
then telling LinkedIn to invite *everyone* in it. Take the time to select
actual individuals rather than spamming everyone.
