LinkedIn is motivated by user acquisition and expansion.  They are hiring 50
JavaScript engineers which they announced at the last Node.js Meetup at the
PubNub office in San Francisco.  I looked up "principle-agent problem" on
Wikipedia and found a pathway to a question I've been asking internally at
PubNub for a while.  Motivating LinkedIn to stop mass spamming would require
something, drastic.  Instituting a legal/morality action preventing address
book access sounds, difficult.  Displacing User / LinkedIn interest
alignment for spamming, priceless.  There are those who simply want the
feature to mass spam their contacts, earning them connections on LinkedIn.
