    47% of them are typical subject lines from LinkedIn. That's 3 times more than the next most popular subject line (facebook stuff).
    It seems that you should just take the trouble to navigate to LinkedIn in your browser, rather than clicking on the email link. Probably easier to do that than to carefully analyse the email message and the link, no?
