While Linkedin's relatively new "Endorse all 4" option is a nice little tool for "light endorsements", there is one little dark side to it: inadvertently endorsing bad profiles.
For example, some of you are connected to this profile for "N/A N/A":
There are more than 500 people connected to "N/A N/A's" Linkedin profile
QUICK FYI:
Linkedin's algorithm pulls up from its database of your connections up to 4 people at a time.  
Quite often, I've seen 2 or 3 whom I welcome recommending.  
(I've recommending some of you for "SOME" of your skills.  Some skills which I haven't witnessed, of course, can't be legitimately recommended.)
+Thanks, and Keep STRONG!!

The really surprising things about that profile (and there are a few) are:

1. That it was only ever accessed once, in 2010

2. That LinkedIn hasn't removed it

3. That it has 500+ connections

This is the type of stupidity that can make you lose faith in a system.

I reported it to the company (Provide Consulting, UK recruitment company), and I'll let you know what happens.

If nothing happens, I'll report it to LinkedIn.

 Excellent "citizenship" to report it, Alan...

(FYI: It may be that the person lost their job and the company just decided to keep all the Linkedin contacts built up under that name...)
