We have a pretty good idea who the sender is base on what we’ve documented here (webblog) and our forum. You decide for yourself.

“To remove yourself from future mailings click hereHi [nevermind],
I am following up on earlier correspondence regarding your job search. I wanted to touch base, given the economic situation to see if you are still looking for work in the Pharmaceutical/Biotech field or any other industry. The latest postings are found here.

I am using Joined for professional networking and more…
Thanks for the followup post today.
These groups have no affiliation with Joined.com.
Joined is a networking site, and we have hundreds of thousands of members, including recruiters and employers inviting others to join their professional networks.
These complaints are something we take very seriously, and we continue to investigate.
One of the challenges that other viral web 2.0 sites like Facebook and LinkedIN face, is to police every single avenue that entities use to drive traffic and build relationships on your site. We will be adding additional reporting functions on our invitations in the coming future to help further identify any unwanted communication.
Once someone is a Joined member, they retain complete control of their privacy settings, controlling who can access the various parts of their profile.
There is a `report member` function that allows real time reporting of any abuse or unwanted communication from other Joined members. Unfortunately, these unwanted messages do not come from Joined members.
You hit the nail on the head in your post about people feeling tricked, which is a shame, and it should not take away from the valuable service that Joined provides. It seems to be the case of a bad messenger, but I can assure you that registering on Joined will not result in a virus.
We have partnerships with the leaders in job search and networking components. Our job search is powered by Indeed.com, the leading job aggregator, bringing our members the web´s best jobs from over 2500 job sites and corporate employment sites. Users are free to view all of these jobs without having to register as a Joined member. I would suggest to any of your readers that members run a job search and see if there are any good matches. I urge them to judge Joined by the quality of the experience on the site.
What I can tell you is that our members are extremely excited about our rapidly growing site, and we are providing a necessary service to both employed and unemployed member in these tough economic times.
Growing a business in this economy is a challenge, I would like to be able to hire an entire team to manage and investigate these complaints. However, the reality is that we have to work with the resources that are in place.
