LinkedIn Prostitution

Last week LinkedIn updated it’s privacy policies and user agreements.  Now for most of us we look at LinkedIn as a professional online resume and networking site, something that you wouldn’t want ANY of your dirty laundry hanging around. Apparently to the point that LinkedIn decided to update their User Agreement to include the statement:

Section B. Don’t undertake the following:

Even if it is legal where you are located, create profiles or provide content that promotes escort services or prostitution.

We all know that prostitution is the worlds oldest profession, and in places like Las Vegas where it is legal this should be ok right?  LinkedIn hasn’t issued any type of statement if there was a particular incident that may have sparked this decision or if it was the result of long term feedback on the subject.

Furthermore, under LinkedIn’s available skills, prostitution is an available skill that you can add to your profile. For some additional comic value take a look at the related skills that you can add to your profile, they include skills such as: Extortion, Racketeering, Manslaughter, Drug Possession, Internet Crimes, Forgery, Drug Trafficking, Conspiracy, Gangs, Embezzlement, Shoplifting, Robbery, Burglar, and yes Rape.
