Something ELSE Altogether

Every so often you come across something so blatantly wrong, you have to comment. The other day, I was referred to this blog not because it was well written, but because this person is advocating violating Ancestry's Terms of Service. Not that I am so enthralled with Ancestry myself, the service is not perfect, but to post entries on your blog advocating printing photos for free, or "sharing" time on Ancestry, well, I just have to comment. Is this what we are teaching people new to genealogy and genealogy sites? Now, this person has no profile you can click on, she does not post your comments even if you make them. I wonder why someone hasn't caught this blogger before. Not only is she violating Ancestry's TOS, but she has monetized her blog and runs ads for Ancestry on the side. Please take this as an example of what not to do.
