WARNING: Read this before you respond publicly to a query posted on this forum Just about all of us Genforum.com to post our genealogy messages, I got this in an e mail today and checked it out what they said was true... I for one will be very careful about posting there from now on, genealogy .Com is using the Genforum lists to sell inforamtion to researchers... I had NO clue that Genealogy.com was doing this. I want to declare WAR! You can't get through to their leaders, but I sure would like to get through to their potential customers and unwitting voluntary contributors. I have innocently posted several responses on those forums myself.
