Your invitation will expire soon! Follow this link to accept XXXXXXX XXXXX's invitation.

Signing up is free and takes less than a minute.

The only way to get access to XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX's professional network is through the following link:

https://www.linkedin.com/XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

You can remove yourself from XXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXX's network at any time.

--------------

The pending expiration of your invitation is an automatic process triggered by system maintenance. This is the only email message you will receive from LinkedIn about the expiration of this invitation from XXXXXXX XXXXXX.

Above is the message which I received from LinkedIn.com couple of times. And in this message, there is no way, I can opt-out. So I think this is the violation of CAN-SPAM act which is discussed on ilugd list last month. Anyways, IANAL…:-D
