I don't have any issue with citing a member tree as a source for any fact I am not in a position to independently verify, because I consider that is exactly what it is. It may be a secondary or tertiary source or perhaps effectively an anecdotal one but it is no less a source to me. Whether it should be considered a reliable source is another matter. That is a judgement call that I have to make on a tree by tree basis and person by person basis.
