Is linkedin.com doing the right thing?

Is linkedin.com doing the right thing?
Originally uploaded by thatjonesboy.

I only have to say "Facebook Beacon" and you remember that it's good practice to allow your users to opt-in before disclosing any new personal information to other users or visitors, right?

So why has LinkedIn sprouted this new module that displays other profiles viewed by people who've viewed my profile? It's not OK by me, not OK by the viewers, and probably not OK by the other people whose profiles are listed here.

I didn't opt-in to displaying this information, and what's worse, I can't find anywhere I can disable this module in my LinkedIn account settings.

Bad form, and sub-par, LinkedIn!
