Terrible. Just terrible. The discussions have improved 3 fold since you started the IPVM discussion forum so I say good riddance to the Linkedin discussions of old.
I actually miss the IPVM LinkedIn forums. Here, I have no opportunity to poke fun at Todd Rockoff ;-(
Here's another classic LinkedIn discussion:
It's now 67 comments along. While Munir never responds, the feedback is a mixture of bashing him, selling him and random non sequiturs like:
You gotta love the "Lamp style camera" spam. I'm just wondering where Anna Chen would suggest installing them.
Unfortunately, that is typical of Chinese company reps. They have absolutely no clue about LinkedIn etiquette. Once upon a time, I accepted a couple of LinkedIn requests from Chinese company reps and I regretted it: spam message after spam message. I tried telling the senders I wasn't interested, to no avail. I finally resorted to "unlinking" to them and now I refuse all requests from Chinese company reps.
There may well be Chinese companies who I would be interested in linking in to but the lack of sophistication of the ones I've seen makes me leary of all of them.
