Exactly the thing I was referring to. I rejected a couple of merges proposed on such divergent profiles that were only connected by the same name. Parents and even countries
were different. I guess I just assumed they got merged if no one rejected them. After I was reprimanded for approving a merge that appeared above one I did approve, and it was over six months old, I have stayed out of the merge lists except for any I have proposed within a weeks time.
