The proof is nothing more than academics. Meanwhile arguing the point gives support to people who are using these harmful techniques.

What you are saying is true, but there are those who still believe that if we haven't got concrete proof (which science rarely provides - only evidence) we've got nothing at all.

We have all kinds of proof that some shaving cream is harmful to some monuments. Period end of story. All it takes is to look at a monument damaged by shaving cream to prove it happens. Just as the sun came up before anyone understood why.

Asking for scientific evidence as to why is completely different.

Given it is known by experts in the field to damage monuments the lack of a why or a scientific study is not an excuse to put a monument at risk.

Arguing we should ignore the anecdotal evidence until we get scientific evidence only puts monuments at risk because some will misunderstand the point and use it as an excuse to continue a poor practice.

And when they had no problem with the fact that photos and information on my dead uncle (died at 18) were lifted and put on Ancestry was when I left the group. They pretty much felt that I shouldn't have put it on findagrave if I didn't want it lifted. That is like saying if you didn't want your lawn chairs stolen, you shouldn't have put them outside!

Rosalie, I am now one of the admins of that group and I haven't seen that post in there. We welcome anyone to join or come back, the group has changed and I do monitor the posts.

I have a problem with folks stealing photos that you personally took and never think a thing about it. Not much you can do unless the law is willing to prosecute. What I do have a problem with is the photo, an old photo, which was not taken by the person placing it there, and their claiming the photo. Many family members have the same photos so who can really lay claim to a photo from the early 1900's. Almost like saying you cannot take a photo of a headstone. They really do not belong to you.
