I use LinkedIn for networking quite a bit. That said, I almost *never* accept
LinkedIn connection requests from people I don't know, or have never
met.... especially if that said person trying to connect with me uses the
default LinkedIn "I'd like to connect with you" message without saying WHY
they want to connect.

When I do get one of those connection requests, I usually either ignore it
or respond back by saying something to the effect of "thanks for reaching
out to me, do I know you"?
