Privacy for Living individuals? Where does FamilySearch "draw the line"?
As I have just been reading on another thread, personal details of living persons can be easily added to deceased individuals' IDs. But there seem to be some anomalies here. I'm sure I read a while back that (take in the Life Sketch for a deceased person) the fact that there are still living children and other relatives should not be mentioned: let alone that further, detailed information (about their births, marriages, etc.) should be written.
I can understand why (and agree with the policy) FamilySearch does not allow IDs for the Living to be visible to the public, but it does continue to allow their records to be displayed - in FamilySearch and Family Tree - albeit most of these are publicly available elsewhere.
To clarify - where should users "draw the line" in entering details of living persons in Family Tree - in their attachments (of sources or notes) to deceased persons? For example, why hide the fact (from Life Sketch, etc.) that the deceased individual has three children still alive, and perhaps give further biographical details of them, when:
(1) We can attach census and other records to a deceased person that does not (as in the case of the 1939 National Register for the UK) redact information of living persons.
(2) We cannot even see the fact that a deceased person has living relatives, by looking at their person page or pedigree charts.
Does FamilySearch follow some external guidance here, or adapt its own approach to what is considered to be fair and reasonable (or likely to be legally challenged) in the open display of details of individuals who are still alive?
