Spammy LinkedIn connection requests

I'm about to cancel my LinkedIn account because of the large number of spammy LinkedIn connection requests I've been receiving over the past week.  I've been getting four or five a day from people I don't know, claiming to be C-level execs at companies I've never heard of.  Grrr.  The problem is exacerbated by the LinkedIn interface which makes you click several times before you can report such requests as spam.  Judging from Richi Jennings blog at Computerworld, I'm not alone.  LinkedIn:  Wake up and take care of this before you lose you membership!
