So if you and I connected around 2013-2016, there is a chance that LinkedIn will remove that connection. Sorry :(

Superconnectors' inability to increase your own network through Linkedin, also has an impact on your network members. We will no longer gain access to your new connections which will appear in your private database. You will still gain the new connections we create. And you may also end up with duplicates in your combined data base since we can connect to the same people at Linkedin that you connect with elsewhere.

The redesigned LIR (LinkedIn Recruiter) breaks the Boolean syntax, and if you use LIR, it's critical that you know how.
