I know that some people do benefit from the business contacts that they make through LinkedIn, but I feel like most maintain account 'just in case'. A couple of years ago after realizing that LinkedIn really didn't matter in my field, I deleted my account.

I doubt they browsed your contacts without permission. But I wouldn't put a large sum of money on it. The again, maybe they scrape your public info, or buy it.
