I shouldn't single out Facebook invites

Shortly after I posted about how Facebook invites are spam, Yaari and LinkedIn reminded me that they do the same thing. Isn't capitalism fun?

I opted out of Yaari, because it's like a virus. The LinkedIn invite didn't even have a decline link, so I accepted it. I filled all the fields with made up information and connected the account to a temporary disposable e-mail address. (GuerillaMail is nice.) That was fun. I'll probably do it in the future if a site re-sends invites and I have some free time. Maybe I should also post the username and password on BugMeNot or here. That could make the accounts into a collaborative art project.
