DHH's rant on LinkedIn:
"Speaking of things they’re terrible: How do you courteously turn
down a request? There seems to be no easy way of “letting it ring on
silent”, like you’d do with a phone call you’d rather not take at the

And it’s probably not just LinkedIn. Social networks seem to be
inherently disrespectful of common social conventions."
Some of the comments are insightful (including some interesting
points in support of LinkedIn as a site), but this one was hilarious:
