I'm sure everyone out there gets email intros. Someone who knows you sends you and someone you don't know an email suggesting you meet. I send emails like that a lot. I might send a half a dozen or more every day. I get even more emails like that. Sometimes dozens a day. And I'd like to propose some email intro etiquette which I follow almost religiously myself: When introducing two people who don't know each other, ask each of them to opt-in to the introduction before making it.
