No bother! That's why I hate declining. I am trying to also deal with all the LinkedIn stuff too. It's becoming an 'issue' for me that people are trying to make us think all this linking is inherently valuable when it is not. Before the request you'd have had access to anything you'd want. Now you still have nothing more or less except for maybe thinking I am a jerk :-)
Sorry to post this as a comment. I can never figure out how to send an email to a member without having an email address. I hate turing down friend requests. It feels rude. But it's what I do at this point until I know someone... Please bear with me. Sincerely,Dave.
