Submission + - LinkedIn 'Blacklist' Censors Thousands of Legitimate Users (boxfreeit.com.au) 1

sholto writes: Had trouble posting to LinkedIn Groups lately? You may have been SWAMed. Back in December LinkedIn massively upgraded the power of the moderator's Block and Delete button so that if you're blocked from one group you are placed in Site Wide Auto-Moderation – your posts must be approved in every group you belong to.

The kicker: LinkedIn decided not to tell moderators about that little change, and there's no appeals process even for mistakes. SWAMed LinkedIn users aren't happy.

This discussion was created for logged-in users only, but now has been archived. No new comments can be posted.
