Just want to go on record tho' I realize this is not the right place to post this:
Apologies to all who I inadvertently asked to accept me on LinkedIn. I should have read the screen more carefully. In clicking “accept all”--or whatever it was--I thought I was simply accepting those who asked to link to me. Instead I was asking others (who LinkedIn said I knew but in many cases didn’t) to link to me. I apologize for this. Please just ignore my request and accept my apologies for this embarrassing error on my part. Next time I will read the screen more carefully.
