As readers of this blog will know, I have a low opinion of LinkedIn, which I consider to be one of the most annoying, intrusive and useless online services in existence. (See here and here, for example.) So today, after yet another of my hapless connections had “endorsed” me for something for which I had never requested an endorsement I finally got round to deleting my account. The ensuing dialogue box contained this interesting information.


The second bullet-point has a vaguely menacing tone. Does it imply that someone else can use my email address(es) to open a (fake) LinkedIn account in my name? Or is it simply saying that I can always think again and use my email address to get back in?
