It seems you can only block individual requests. Thus each time they get 
a new sucker and your email address is harvested, you get new spam. You 
have to unsubscribe else they keep coming.

I used the LinkedIn help center to reach their contact form and 
requested to be permanently banned from their email server. The help 
center insists you search first for an answer, so just type in garbage 
and do a search to get past that firewall.

I suppose I will have to blacklist them myself eventually.
