re: How I made a web scraper because LinkedIn VIEW POST


I wanted to get all of my LinkedIn connections' emails.

That is exactly why I never accept connection requests from anybody I don’t know in person.


While I kind of agree, I also don’t agree.

I also don’t connect with people I don’t know and it has nothing to do with his behaviour, but a matter of practice self harm reduction. If any one of my connections minus the recruiters of course were to do the same as the author I would assume it’s a reasonable use case and be fine with it.

Fundamentally I have no issue with someone wanting the access they were granted, but if you connect with randoms then you get what you get. Maybe it’s a little like dating ;)
