To me, criminal and civil LAWS and privacy of the living are paramount and those that violate such should not lecture others about things here that do NOT violate criminal and civil LAWS and privacy of the living.
AND WITH THAT:
Obituaries because of copyright LAWS and privacy of the living; Obituaries in/AFTER 1922 ARE NOT PUBLIC DOMAIN so please stop saying they are; plus the site protocol CLEARLY states:
"Do not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain."
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.
When I have on a memorial a note that says I have an obituary for that person and that I do not need it sent to me then PLEASE do not sent it to me OR send me a note of what newspaper or funeral home that I can find a copy it either because I ALREADY have it. Sending me those types of edits is a waste of YOUR time, MY time, SITE email resources and MY EMAIL resources.
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 ROUTINELY 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. I will NOT link to memorials that are for someone that is STILL ALIVE because memorials are NOT supposed to be made (except If someone is making a memorial for/about THEMSELVES) for the living.
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 to get merges, like the 16 from today alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!AND 16 MORE AGAIN TODAY!!!!!!!) 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 they know who they are already; and sometimes "hasseurca evientda hasseca".
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.
