If a former manager never fought for you or bothered to reach out when you got laid off and then creeps your LinkedIn every so often is it worth keeping them as a contact, or remove them?
Any more word on the PwC Forensics layoffs? It appears to be going on in multiple markets.

So I love my fiance with all my heart. He's the most patient, caring, loving man. Our wedding is planned for some time end of next year.
