In a nutshell, this annoyed me. I don’t know this guy even though he has the same name as me. Surely inviting people to be your friend on Facebook means at a bare minimum you know who they are? I would contest that on Linked In it’s more about business contacts and that’s OK.

On closer inspection the guy appears to have been doing something a bit Dave Gorman-esque but clearly not as successfully. Or as funny.

So along with invites to kiss certain people or pass along strange dog pictures, I’ll be ignoring this. Maybe I’m just getting old and cantankerous?
