I only accept invites from people I know, except in very rare situations. Personalized isn't really relevant that that point. If I know them, there's no real need to personalize.

If I get an invite from someone I don't recognize and it's not personalized, I reply through LinkedIn and ask if I know them. Then I choose to accept or not based on their response. I've politely declined invites and never had anyone get upset about it.
