Thank You Linkedin

I was talking to my brother last night. I asked him if he checked out my blog yet. When I told him Linkedin restricted my account because published a couple posts on their platform about the Pipeline Protest and my Lakota Friends at Standing Rock he asked me why. I told him they were probably too political for the people at Linkedin. It’s a site where business people network.

The truth is before Linkedin booted me off their publishing platform, I was just Joe Blow who started a new blog. Only a few people read my posts. Now hundreds of people have read my articles and have even commented on them. Even the posts that aren’t about the protest.

When I try to log on to Linkedin, this is the message I get:

Sorry, your account has been restricted due to suspicious behavior that violates our User Agreement. If you think this might have been an error, please follow these instructions.

Well the guys at Linkedin with their restricting my account did me a favor. So I’d like to say Thank You to whoever got me kicked off their platform!! That’s what got people to notice me.
