So, I am all about asking for an earned endorsement or recommendation on LinkedIn – or anywhere really…but this was literally appalling to me!  I connected with this guy, like many others, upon his request and never heard a peep out of him…until I got this message:

 

I blackened out his identifying information just to be kind but…wish I didn’t feel I had to.  Seriously – who does this???

 

But wait – there’s more.  When I first got this message, I remember being flabbergasted…like what the heck  did I just read????  I decided just to ignore it rather than waste my energy…  But then, 6 months later I get the exact same message from him again!!!  

 

This is not what LinkedIn recommendations are all about.  What happened to integrity and authenticity?  

 

Have any of you received similar messages?
