Did you know MatchBot-proposed merges can include pre-1700 & pre-1500 profiles?

As I understand how MatchBot works, it does not seek matches for profiles with birth years of 1700 or before. But that does not mean that MatchBot-proposed merges don't include pre-1700 & pre-1500 profiles, just that MatchBot was looking for duplicates of a profile with no birth year (or one after 1700) & found a match with a profile that had a birthdate that was pre-1700.

If you check the feed of MatchBot-proposed merges, the ones involving pre-1700 & pre-1500 profiles have that info highlighted:
