I've never signed up to Facebook or Twitter. But I did start posting and commenting on LinkedIn some years back, chiefly because I was hoping to read a single concrete reason from a Brexiter about why leaving the EU might be a good thing. I never found one. A few folk were civil enough in their delusions, but the majority turned abusive/ad hominem after a comment of two.
Certainly I've met some fine people on LI, and also used it as a shop window for my work. Now I'm stepping back simply because the system of reporting outrageous violations of the site's code of conduct isn't working. Nine times out of ten, you get the response below. This is, more or less verbatim, what I last posted there.
'We’ve reviewed your report
'Here’s what happened
'Our Trust & Safety Team reviewed your report thoroughly and found this comment did not go against our Professional Community Policies.'
My post is currently heading towards 9,000 views, with at least a dozen regulars telling me they also reported the comment and got the same reply. I tried addressing LinkedIn Help; it offfered to look at the comment again, asked me various questions about my ID and the poster's, but after three days, nothing.
