I hate to jump in on this "me too" thread, but I recommend you accept
the invitations from the bosses you respect, and leave the rest in
waiting status so you can observe any changes to their profiles.

If you want, you could be malicious: contact the questionable, or
accept and then leave a negative recommendation that their performance
and professional conduct were not acceptable.

You'll find that when you look at things black and white, the choice
becomes easy. (I've never left a negative recommendation, but instead
chose to hold their invitation until I could think of a positive
outcome for our connection.)

I also set a hard policy for recruiters. I may have to be more
explicit about the terms of engagement. I think I may also have to
clean out my contacts to find the active connections.
