I tried to take a screen shot of it with the mouse over “I DO NOT KNOW THIS PERSON.” I was going to upload it to flickr and be like “Adam someone is pretending to be you on linkedin, only they’re on linked in, so i knew it wasn’t really you.” Except it didn’t capture the mouse pointer, so it sorta boned the joke.”
