Ways to correct information or at least add a note that some of it is incorrect
My tree has people added who are clearly incorrect. I did not add them.
They were born AFTER their listed CHILDREN.
It says I can not remove them yet it is clear they are incorrect.
I would like to at least be able to add a note pointing out the dates discrepancies and that they are incorrect.
I do not like that it was added to MY TREE and I can not correct the misinformation.

You can make corrections. Either change the dates (of birth, etc.) if the individuals do belong to your branch of the tree, but just have wrong data attached. Alternatively, you can detach their relationship with your family members. This is usually done by clicking on the pencil icon alongside the names of the individuals concerned and then on "Remove or Replace". Provide a reason statement, then "Remove Parents" and the wrongly added individuals will no longer be present in your family.
By the way, there is no "My Tree" concept with Family Tree, which is a shared, open-edit project.0

When I find errors like these I use the "Life Sketch" section at the top of the person view to put in comments like "TENTATIVE: this might be two different people" or "PROBABLY WRONG: sources contradict each other" This part usually display the first couple of lines so it's quite obvious to anyone viewing it.
P.S. We're all in one BIG tree !1
