Remember, LinkedIn has grown so much in part because so many people are willing to hand over their email passwords so LinkedIn can take a look at their contacts.

LinkedIn knows exactly how many people will hand over full control of their email if it means that they have a better chance of finding a better job.

Think I have to agree with you on that. Despite all the umbrage from HN, etc crowd, they prolly know it isn't really hurting them & the financial rewards are great.

Just doesn't seem like the greatest marketing strategy at the moment :-)
