Most of the time when you're posting your data to an Internet site you do so via a gedcom.

PAF allows you to privatize a gedcom two ways: anyone living is shown without a birth date, but their name is include; or living people are eliminated completely.

I believe that the rule used for determining if someone is dead or to be considered dead is having a death date given, or over 95 years of age. The help files in PAF should give the correct answer.

There once was a program called Res Privata that allowed you to privatize a gedcom where you set the guidelines, but I don't know whether it is still available.
