Even the smartest folks I know fell for that.
Today they have either rescinded the posting or are licking their electronic wounds.
On LinkedIn, being a professional social media platform, I hope we never get to this type of feeding frenzy. Consider the source of what you read: the publication, the person sharing it, etc.

Thought sharer be careful.
Thought leader be very vigilant.
