Here's two facts about LinkedIn everyone must know: 1. It is a spam machine as no one likes to visit one's resume repeatedly 2. LinkedIn is more useful to HR companies who in turn spam all the time, than the average user, who is not a shameless self-promoter anyway. If you are irritated with having to check all Linked emails with 'mark as read' (or deleted), then here's how you can get LinkedIn to stop spamming you. All you need to locate the hidden Settings menu (top right corner of the web page). From there it is smooth going:

Go to email preferences
Only choose Introductions messages.
