P/E >500 scares me; and recent job in 2013 based on greed, not wisdom.

I am a bit confused regarding the appropriate P/E of those being tossed to use for assessing LNKD. You and the street have it at about 500. Elsewhere on this list others have tossed out 1000. Barron's (6/3/13) has it at 116.8 w/o stock grants and 806.4 w/stock grants & more a la GAAP, both assuming the price at 169.35. It seems to me that the 806.4 is the one that we at MF should be looking at. It's the one that relates more to how much of any earnings will be making it into my pocket. Or not. A big range of P/E's with considerable differences in their implications. Thoughts?
