LinkedIn and shackled

When I first saw this feature (endorsements) at LinkedIn, I was skeptic. I wrote on my profile: "For the moment I step back from the new Linkedin "Endorsement" feature, as I have no full grasp of its benefits and downsides, and I look forward to see some critical assessments of this. Thus, for the moment, no thanks to endorsements :-) " – but as the emails from LinkedIn began streaming in, prompting for endorsements, I couldn't help doing this one:
