My Badge of Honor – LinkedIn “Permanently Restricted” Me

Today I received somewhat of a shock, out of the blue.

I received a notification from LinkedIn that I had been warned, once, in July of 2016, not to…

  • Act dishonestly or unprofessionally, including by posting inappropriate, inaccurate, or objectionable content
  • Harass, abuse, or harm another person
  • Send spam or other unwelcome communications to others
Please note that we did send you a warning on July 19, 2016 to cease this type of activity.

Eight months ago?  Who accused me?  Where is your evidence?

I categorically and emphatically deny any such activities.

Dear LinkedIn, if this is the extent to which you describe my indiscretions, I am sorely disappointed.  I did none of the above.  I post material which exposes the actions of others who engage in disinformation, propaganda, lies, fabrications, false news, and other activities normally associated with Russian Information Warfare. I also discuss US and Western efforts to counter them.  If Russia takes umbrage or somehow objects to me highlighting their activities, I hereby invite them to tell me.

  • I hereby invite you, LinkedIn, to actually tell me who accused me. You’re a US corporation and I have the right to face my accuser.
  • I hereby invite you to offer me due process, as is guaranteed by the US constitution.
  • I hereby invite you to offer me a copy of the evidence against me.
  • I hereby invite you to describe the detailed process by which you judged me, as you have no written standards.

I notice the notification is signed by Scarlett. No last name. No phone number. No link. No information.

  1. Did you somehow forget the people you pissed off along the way? All it takes is for someone, or multiple people, to report your posts, comments, etc. and LinkedIn’s software does the rest.

    1. Moi? Enemies? Just some no-name in Afghanistan, oops, I meant Outer Carjackistan, apparently…

      True dat, what you said. We can use that, too…

  2. Interestingly, Scarlett was the same person at LinkedIn that nixed Charles Leven’s account. All you and Charles Leven ever did was hold up the mirror….

    Let us all now join in a round of mock shaming of Scarlett for her sins.

    Shame….. Shame….. Shame…..

  3. I can still post my Baghdad blogs from here to LinkedIn. I thought perhaps one of my photos was offensive.
