Poems Pertinent To Leaving Linkedin: "Limbo Losses" from How to Survive the Loss of a Love

No, I wasn't Linkedin's lover - and Linkedin wasn't mine. But, when someone asked me whether I'd started having withdrawal symptoms from not going to Linkedin.com for the past couple of days, it reminded me of this wonderful little book called "How To Survive The Loss Of A Love" (by Peter McWilliams, Harold H. Bloomfield, and Melba Colgrove http://www.amazon.com/Survive-Loss-Love-Peter-McWilliams/dp/0931580439):

As a loyal fan and advocate of LinkedIn, I'm so frustrated I can barely stand it. I use LI as a tool to find excellent candidates and network with a host of wonderful people.
