Hello Dan,

I read your conversation with Bob and I decided to take action. I  
received the following message from LinkedIn. The request for a new  
FreeBSD group for LinkedIn is currently being reviewed. Within  
approximately 2 working days it will be activated if everything goes  
well. FreeBSD could not be used as a group name so I took the liberty  
to give a new name.


Hi Erik,

Your request for a group Berkeley Software Distro Corner on LinkedIn  
has been received and is pending approval. Please allow 1-2 business  
days for our customer service team to review your group request. You  
will be notified when your group has been approved or rejected.

If you have additional questions, you may contact us at
