Aibu to call out LinkedIn harassment
Linkedinshite · 06/12/2019 20:37
Have name changed as am probably going to end up outing myself.
I run a business and as such my LinkedIn profile and being “friendly” to new connections who message me is a must.
For about the third time this month, I’ve been harassed by a man (who guess what only seems to have added women to his profile).
I’m sick of this and have publicly published screenshots of the messages.
I think we tend to not talk about this, and I’m
A bit sick of it.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

If it's really off he'll be warned or suspended.

I have a love / hate relationship with LinkedIn. This shit really gets on my nerves.
Could you do a prolific post about the purpose of LI, harassment etc but blank out his name ensuring that he sees it too? (Not sure if you’ve blocked him)
The PR from it could be good
I had a post that went viral on there a few weeks back. It was a bit “out there” but was very good for various reasons (branding, connections etc). Written correctly, it could hit 2 birds with one stone (embarrassing the knobhead and do good for your business)

But the point is - why should this even happen. This doesn’t happen to dh.
It's happened to me too and it's shit. It doesn't happen to men because many men think it's acceptable to harass women, especially when they can do so anonymously. Women don't generally have that defect.
This is why I like MN. It's a women friendly space.
