"Come and see the violence inherent in the system!"

A few months ago, to manage burnout, I switched off every LinkedIn notification.
Things were quiet for a while.
Then a LinkedIn email in my inbox. A new feature, you see - hadn't been part of my purge. Gotcha!
Then another one. Another new thing.
Back to 1-2 emails, & 3-4 notifications per week.
Rob Nixon (2011) defines "slow violence" as "[A]n attritional violence that is typically not viewed as violence at all".
If your platform keeps reverting to slow violence - check for your nearest exit.

You'll only receive email when they publish something new.
