It's big of you to apologize, and I, for one, really appreciate it.

Just so we're clear that you're clear on what happened and how you
will ensure that this *never* happens again, please advance a theory
or two as to what might motivate an outfit like LinkedIn, which does
not routinely charge end-users, to collect your entire address book.

You get extra points for theories involving phrases using and briefly
summarizing, the phrase, "principle-agent problem."
