Greg Long, Mel Batterman, Rick Starr, and all the others
whom I DO NOT KNOW, you need to give me a second option,
other than asking me to LIE, and say that I know you!
Because this is so screwed up, I have ZERO interest in
"LinkedIn". I have more interesting ways to waste time,
thank you very much.

- Robo-callers ALWAYS hang up after 5 rings.
My ringer is always turned off.
For me to answer you,
