In the online virtual world this kind of response is surprising,
thanks for your invite to join your network. I try and keep my Lxxxxxxx network clean so don’t tend to link to people whom I have not met or with whom I do not have an existing relationship.
I work from home, sometimes manage to get off work to make it to an Open Coffee Cork meeting, I blog, I develop websites, maintain websites, Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook, FriendsFeed etc. I almost don’t have a real world to meet people in, and in this virtual world, it’s a little bit Old Fashioned to not connect with people with which you have no facetime with. I’m not really sure if I find that refreshing, or insulting. But I’ll probably cease inviting anyone into any of my networks again.
