Hi. I need to show whether this series diverges or converges, by the direct comparison test. But I don't understand what it is that I should compare it to that is helpful. $\displaystyle \sum_{n=2}^{\infty}\frac{ln\,n}{n+1}$

Since for $\displaystyle n\ge{3}$, $\displaystyle \ln{n}\ge{1}$ and $\displaystyle 2n>n+1$, $\displaystyle \frac{\ln{n}}{n+1}>\frac{1}{2n}$. - Hollywood
Why not just compare it to $\displaystyle \sum{\frac{1}{n+1}}$?
