Help, I've been SWAM'd

If you haven't discovered this delightful feature of LinkedIn yet, SWAM stands for Site Wide Auto Moderation.

The SWAM policy was quietly introduced by LinkedIn earlier this year. Its intentions were good, to prevent recidivist spammers from ruining discussion forums for all.

Unfortunately, the design of the policy is such that it's more likely that the professional, appropriate poster will be caught in its net than any annoying spammer.
