I believe these are the effect of linkedin harvesting your email contacts, and then a blanket &quot;invite all&quot; link that you can click. Whether it&#39;s linkedin who&#39;s spamming, or the person who forgot to uncheck certain mailing lists, that&#39;s more of a moral debate..<div>

As an aside, can we not automatically delete all messages to haskell mailing-lists whose &quot;from&quot; field contains &quot;LinkedIn&quot; (and the likes of it) in it?<br>
