When a profile is indicted as Project Protected, how does one find out which project is protecting it?  As in the case of John Ackley-68.

Shouldn't there be a tag or something added?  Else how can I join the project?

Sometimes there isn't a project - the terminology of PPP or Project Protected Profile is more often than not used to indicate that a Project has assumed some ownership of the maintenance of that profile, but not always. Sometimes, it's an indication that there have been past disputes over the parents of this particular individual, and in order to solve those, the PPP flag was set to prevent the parents from being changed. PPP only protects a few items on the profile. See here for more details:

And yet another merged profile not cleaned up (til now).

FYI one does not (or should not) need to contact a project to clean up a mess.

This policy was updated in 2017 and a project is now required for PPP. 

is there a good reason to retain PPP? New rules introduced last year require a project be associated with and be co-managed by a project if a profile is PPP but perhaps PPP isn't needed here? What do you think?
