Obituaries because of copyright LAWS and about privacy of the living:
The part of the site protocol that says: "If the obituary is added to the memorial record, list the newspaper and date the obit was printed":
THAT IS ONLY FOR WHEN YOU ALSO HAVE PERMISSION FOR POSTING OBITUAIRES NOT JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT TO MAKE IT A "LOOP-HOLE" TO ADD OBITUARIES. That part is often given to me as an excuse for positng obituaires BUT when it is, it is because the individual is using selective reading because IT ALSO SAYS (including repeat of name of newspaper part):
"Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission."
AND "If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published." DO NOT TRY AND CREATE YOUR OWN LOOP-HOLES OR USE SELECTIVE READING.
And there is also this that is routinely ignored:
"Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law." Now I do not post obituary photographs either but my main concern is 1st the privacy of the living and then also the copyright of obituaries.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE people it is US Marine CORPS not Corp; US Army Air CORPS not Corp; US Army Engineering CORPS not Corp; US Army CORPS of Engineers not Corp; US Women's Army CORPS not Corp, US Women's Army Air CORPS not Corp and so forth!! Corp in military terms is for CORPORAL (as is CPL) not anything else.

Also, Ft. Hood (for example) is a US Army POST NOT Base.

As far as I am concerned, those that create memorials for people that they KNOW are STILL ALIVE (REGARDLESS of their birth year) are morbid but if they are not positive that the person died but create a memorial anyway, I figure they are either uncaring if they have died and just want another memorial made under their name or are just too plain lazy to confirm the death. And I have zero respect for such actions and those that doing such actions are to me not trustworthy and they should NOT expect me to trust them nor go out of my way for them.

If you see a memorial that I created but do not manage and the memorial includes an obituary in the bio please know that I was NOT the one that added it but it was added after the memorial was transferred.

Also, if I send you an edit then you manually make all the changes yourself THEN decline the entire edit as "no change" and do that multiple times (habitually) THEN I MAY DECLINE your future edits outright (there may be exceptions) OR make the changes manually THEN DECLINE (since you seem to like that tactic) and I will no longer send YOU directly any future edits; there are at least a couple of people around here that do that habitually which to me makes them UNTRUSTWORTHY.

"Emona ema mpuneia acessitla" Karma is real no matter how many times you change your "name".

"Virtual THIEVES" are not much better than real-world thieves be it copyright infringement of obituaries or photographs or memorials themselves; the more that people commit "virtual THEFT" (by conning an admin with trickery) the more I will "adjust" my memorials to prevent the "virtual THEFT" or deletion of my content/researched information BY just NOT including it in memorials in the 1st place and keeping it to myself, if you "steal" then you can find and post your own info but I am sure most of the time it will just turn out to be a copy and paste of a COPYRIGHTED obituary...AND do NOT forget about KARMA. I would call people out by name but I am not allowed plus Karma does not need any help.

If I do not trust you or you have been rude to me, if I see your name at the top of an "other edit" correction email then the rest of the email will go unread.
