Leslie Says: No. You have nothing to gain from connecting with her. First, you won’t ask her for introductions because you don’t want to interact with her any more than you are already forced to. Second, you won’t make a personal introduction to anyone in your network to her because she will likely be just as abrasive to them as she is to you. And finally, you don’t want people in your network to think you have a relationship with her because she is toxic. This is why LinkedIn has an IGNORE button.
