LinkedIn Has to Pay Out After Annoying Users

LinkedIn has to pay out after spamming the crap out of people. “LinkedIn’s Add Connections program allowed users to import their personal contacts into the company’s system and then have invitations to connect on LinkedIn sent out on their behalf. However, if a recipient of the invitation email didn’t accept the invitation within a certain amount of time, LinkedIn would then send two follow up emails repeating the invitation.”

Okay, so technically it’s not spamming people, because LinkedIn did have permission to communicate with people. So I guess technically I should write “LinkedIn has to pay out after horribly abusing the trust and permission of its users by metaphorically beating them over the head with an e-mail stick.” Right?
