How to avoid being annoying on LinkedIn

A few weeks ago I received an invitation to connect with another social media consultant. I’m usually happy to link up online with other people in my field as it’s great to be able to share ideas and – occasionally – concerns, and have meaningful discussions about the digital media marketing world. Also, there’s always the chance of cross-referrals if one person is too busy to take on new clients, so it’s good to have other people to recommend. But very quickly, a problem arose...  
I’m not a gambler – just the odd occasional flutter for fun.  I prefer roulette – there’s a real childish excitement about watching the wheel spin and waiting for the little silver ball to land on its final number.
Have you ever been speed-dating?  Me neither. But I attended my first speed-networking this week and I’m pretty sure it’s the same sort of thing!
