Sourcing is Recruiting... with Audacity!

File under Creepy, Disturbing and downright Unbelievable! 
This has to be the creepiest and most disturbing evidence of why LinkedIn has completely lost its value. I’ve attached a screenshot of the message because if I simply pasted the text you wouldn’t believe me. Yeah, this is REAL. 
The story is as follows:
Someone claiming to be a US Army “lieutenant commander” messaged me through LinkedIn offering their “friendship” because they “liked my profile picture on LinkedIn” and think I would be a “good woman” to befriend. 
OK let me stop right there and explain a couple of things: 
I am not a woman. That’s evident on my LinkedIn photo. Duh.
What, that’s not enough to creep you out? Then read this:
US Army officers are highly accomplished and educated. A real officer would make better use of grammar. 
Lieutenant Commanders are US Navy and Coast Guard, not Army.
The correct abbreviation would be Lt Cdr in the Navy or CG, not Lt. Col. Such discrepancy indicates they are neither because a bona fides officer would clearly know the difference. 
In the US Army Lt. Col. is a Lieutenant Colonel (silver oak leaf) one step above Major one step below a “full bird” Colonel, this is a very high rank, takes 20 years to get there and a very small percentage of our military ever attains it.
I seriously doubt anyone at this rank is anything short of a proud patriot, to whom the concept of leaving the country would be inconceivable. 
"Dancing on a volcano"? WTF?!?!??
"Intestines that collide in the abdomen"…? Excuse me?
Thank you, LinkedIn, its been 10 great years since I joined you in 2004 but its now 2014 and this kind of stuff should NOT be coming through. Maybe its time we think about splitting up…
