Dear John: I’ve been a victim of massive political bias from LinkedIn.
It has discriminated against me and shut me down, to the point of harassment and bullying, and completely silenced me solely because of my political affiliation.
I’ve tried to speak to someone who is in a management role there, but it is very careful to not allow access and just puts up a wall.
If you know of a way for me to talk to someone in a real management and decision-making capacity, I would appreciate the opportunity to point out what its people are doing. K.Z.
Dear K.Z.: Nope, I don’t know how to get through to LinkedIn management. In fact, I’m getting as stonewalled as you are.
Just so readers know, you are a conservative Republican. I can’t see your postings because they have been taken down. But you say they were “regarding accomplishments of the conservatives or conservative policies, or pointing out the hypocrisy or failures of the left.”
I asked LinkedIn about your situation. And all I got was a boilerplate answer: “Our customer service teams communicate with members in situations like these, before a restriction is taken, including providing the opportunity to appeal a decision,” was the answer I got.
Then LinkedIn said, “We do not comment on individual member accounts.” This is sort of a HIPAA policy for techies where they can’t reveal personal information to me. Pretty convenient.
So the best I have in this situation is to ask LinkedIn’s management — in print — to call me and explain your situation, after of course, you sign a consent form.
