LinkedIn: We shouldn’t have rejected Washington Post copy editor’s book ad

Washington Post copy editor Bill Walsh tried to advertise his book, “Yes, I Could Care Less: How to be a Language Snob Without Being a Jerk,” on LinkedIn, but his ad was rejected for “poor grammar.”

I received this note today from LinkedIn corporate communications manager Fenot Tekle:

We noticed your article regarding Bill Walsh’s attempt to use LinkedIn Ads to promote his book Yes, I Could Care Less: How to Be a Language Snob Without Being a Jerk.

I am writing to let you know that we made a mistake while processing this request and would be happy to work with Bill so that he can start advertising.

I’ve let Bill know.
