Yup I got burned when a small close [x] button was placed right next to a massive 'spam invites/connection requests to everyone you have sent an email to ever without any confirmation' button. I really did want to connect again to my stalking psycho ex and give her the idea I wanted to get back in touch.
Fuck you LinkedIn. Never again!

OK smartypants, if you think it is an "error," what is the authority on English grammar? Is there a book or something that lists the rules?

maybe these will do the trick.. they are good enough for universities.
or these should suffice
you SEEM to think that "seen" is a perfectly fine and esoteric substitute for "seem"... it's not.
You also seem to be labouring under the misapprehension that you are right under all circumstances even when blatantly wrong.
I also find your utter pretentiousness absolutely hilarious! 100% entertainments from how hard you bite. It's just magical!...
Please tell us all how magical and fabulous you are again!...

Surely you mean "a" grammar wagon, as excepting situations of internal conflict grammar is merely a matter of style in English.

Nope, it's one big , singular fucking wagon and you ain't on it!
there's right way and a wrong way and you got it very fucking wrong.

internal conflict


psychological struggle within the mind of a literary or dramatic character, the resolution of which creates the plot's suspense:
Hamlet's inaction is caused by internal conflict.
mental struggle arising from opposing demands or impulses.

So tell me Captain Bollocks... in which manner were you using literary device of "internal conflict" correctly in your mangled sentence eh????
Ooh.... I see, you didn't! dig that hole son, dig that hole!

It is still a shame that Nixon's resignation over shadowed his accomplishments while in office. He got the US military out of Vietnam. He visited China to personally open a diplomatic channel between China and the US. That action on his part kicked off the US's most successful regime operation in history. It brought China into the international trade and financial markets which changed them from a poor and inward looking Communist regime into one of the most capitalistic countries on the planet. China has not been a communist country for a long time no matter what they call their country. Nixon also created the EPA which has been one of the most successful government agencies since it was created.

yeah and that war on drugs he started.. that wasn't a total fiscal black hole at all was it? not a waste of time, energy, money and lives? Nixon was a twat

Actually Nixed did not get ousted for having the re-election team break into DNC Headquarters and plant bugs.

Nixon got ousted for covering up the issue after he learned of it. Nixon did not direct it to happen. Nixon covered it up after the fact.

erm.. there's quite a bit more to it than that and it was very clear he had involvement from inception to execution and over up.. hoisted by his own petard ,his own recording were used as evidence and proved knowledge all the way from the start to the end.

Genuine research doesn't make headlines. Just the pipe-dream stuff that shows a minor correlation in one study that aligns with wishful thinking. Thus we get lots of headlines indicating wine, chocolate, pizza and are all good for you..... according to science.

Unless you go around reading scientific journals, I'll bet science journalism is the only exposure to academic research you actually get exposure to. Journalists don't report scientifically or arguably even much of what's true; They report what sells.
When was the last time you saw a paper headline reporting a negative correlation on something? It's little wonder people don't trust experts. It's likely they have almost never actually heard from one.

The whole point of terrorism is that they can't go to war or they will lose, so they attack us in hopes that we will make more restrictive laws and this lady is taking the bait.

It's seems to be people going it alone now rather than carefully orchestrated strikes. With that in mind these people are just brainwashed by 'alternative' facts. It's not a physical conflict any more except for acts of violence that are almost a symptom rather than the end game. We are in a war of information and the mass murderers are enticed by a sparkling golden ticket, the fame offered by our own profiteering media outlets who erupt into a ratings frenzy at the scent of radicalised blood spilling.

When neither side actually employs much of the truth, exposing lies always makes it really easy for someone in your own echo-chamber to swallow any horse-shit you feed them immediately after.

Yes, it is true that people that use their system's default browser tend to be dumb. These people are statistically poorly performing employees, and some companies avoid hiring them. So even if you use MSIE or Edge as your browser, you should use something else when submitting your resume.

Fascinating. Sounds exactly like the kind of positive reinforcement I would love to believe.

"A study of 20,000 workers showed that more honest people tend to perform better and stay at the job longer. For some reason, however, they make less effective salespeople."

So where is the study? Who did it? Was it the author with ants?

I hate these things, they never work as stated. All it means is they can save money by buffering ahead even less. Days past if you had a poor connection you could load a video and pause it and it would buffer through. Now if you pause it buffers what it seems to think is all you actually need. It never is.
