Fat finger clarity

Fat finger clarity

In response to Guy Green’s allegations in the Brainerd Dispatch Reader Opinion section dated Feb. 21. I did on Feb. 17 respond to a LinkedIn invite from someone that came to my email address. All LinkedIn invites will come this way. I receive many of these invites per week sent to my email address. I usually try to accept them and move on. On small touch screen pads a “fat finger” like mine will hit the wrong key. These new screen touch devices can do that very easily. I did that on that Sunday in question and instead of accepting the invite from someone that day I accidentally invited everyone in my email folder. The only way Guy Green became one of those invited is because he sent me an email on Jan. 17 bashing and trashing me for the Safe Routes to School grant application.

I see that Mr. Green had a chance to follow his normal practice of making allegations without facts. I use social media for business and personal reasons. Please check out my many Facebook friends either on my personal or business Facebook site. I actually have a sense of humor and fun with the social media sites as many of my friends will attest.

All of these sites will have either a delete button or unfriend button if folks so choose. Nobody is forced into anything on these sites. Relax and enjoy them.
