Once again I have had to explain to a brand new poster why her thread was reported as unacceptable 3 times.and find a way to word her post so not too much personal information is displayed.

No notification from GR seems to have been sent giving any reason,

I still feel a simple form with name ,date, place and no room for other details would be much easier for fill in

Beginners manage to march straight through the minefield of do's and dont's and post wrongly, then not comprehend their errors.~I think you need to understand the emotions of a lot of posters who are desperate to find their relations on the back of the TV series expecting instant results.

The Living Relatives board is an abomination, the way new users on that board are treated by the site management is atrocious, etc. etc. etc.
