I deleted my previous posts about a proposed public-tree strike. I apologize to those who responded to it, but do not have the time right now to pursue the argument (if there is any) for it.
Regarding Dennis's comment: "All that said I would prefer to be able to set my tree so that when private tree owners look at my match they see just what I see when I look at theirs." I agree completely. That's what I want and have burned up that "feedback" tab to express that desire to Ancestry.
