Can you please discard / ignore and not report matches in trees for members who are existing contacts. This practice wastes a lot of time checking and deleting messages that should not have been generated to advise people who are already sharing information and most probably knew about the match long before you found it.

Or, perhaps, still report but indicate the member is an existing contact, as happens now with Hot Matches.
