Why Do 90% Of People Do LinkedIn Requests With Generic Messages?

For example:

Equally as bad, it is generally from people I have never heard of.

I thought it was common sense / sales 101, etc., to write a 10 second personalized message. Yes/no?

I am not even sure the point of being connected on LinkedIn but evidently these people do, so you would think they could dedicate a few seconds to say something meaningful.

Help me.
