Is it really true that Wikitree now does not want us to add profiles for anyone whom we do not know personally and might be living? Even when the info is publicly available in Family Search on say the 1930 or 1940 census or a simple Google search?
Much of my interest has been in connecting with distant cousins, who are still alive. The new rules, if I understand them, could put an end of that. Particularly if the profiles are unlisted, why is it a problem to put the profile on Wikitree?
