Are there any quality controls in place to prevent fictitious people from being added repeatedly
Are there any quality controls to prevent fictitious profiles from being added over and over again into Family Tree. These same fictitious profiles were added into WikiTree, and the WikiTree admins took over the profile and marked them as fictitious and made it so the contributor could not recreate the fictitious information. I even received an "apology" of sorts from on of the WikiTree arbitrators who said the WikiTree is working hard to keep the "junk" from FamilyTree from getting brought over into WikiTree.
I am in a "tug-of-war" with another patron who insists on adding fictitious persons into the tree. He adds them, I go merge them into the fictitious person record. He creates them again.
Also, he repeatedly recreates a relationship that is known to be an error. He creates the relationship, I remove the relationship, he recreates it.
I have spoken to this patron on the phone, and explained my reasoning for knowing this information is in error. When I talked with him on the phone, and read the sources to him, we came to an agreement that his information could not possibly be accurate.
When I first spoke to him, he was very antagonistic, but as we spoke and I explained the sources and the known facts, he softened and agreed that the data I was trying to provide was correct.
Now he is suddenly back to adding the false data again, and the messages he is sending me seem to suggest that he doesn't remember our conversation and doesn't even remember who I am.
I'm having a similar problem on another family line as well. Again, the patron who continually adds the incorrect information seems to have some memory problems. I can remind him again and again, and when I explain the sources he quickly agrees with me, but he seems to quickly forget our conversations and reverts back to adding the incorrect data.
I feel like this takes a lot of time and energy to prevent one single patron from doing extensive damage to the tree. It seems like there should be some form of quality control that could help with this issue. WikiTree has been able to implement some quality control. Is there any way that Family Tree can implement some quality control in cases like this?
I understand that most patrons are just doing their best to further the work, but I think that any reasonable person must admit that sometimes patrons can reach an age or mental state that makes it so they are extremely likely to just create damage. Is there any way that FamilySearch can intervene to help these patrons? I have tried everything I can think of to fix this problem.
While on of the patrons that I'm dealing with is very kind, the other one is not. He keeps threatening to "report" me. I really keep hoping that my corrections will aggravate him enough that he will contact FamilySearch and maybe FS will have more success in managing him than I do.
Please advise me as to whether there are any further actions I can take that I have not already tried. The damage is extensive and occurs on my direct lines and affects the task bars of a huge number of descendants. I also can see comments from many other respected researchers who are dealing with the same issue from this patron. This doesn't seem right that one single person can repeatedly recreate the exact same damage to everyone else's tree.
