Hmmm, I was told I needed written permission. Dave, my brother, isn't interested so much in joining stuff online (he's 75 and not a fan of high tech), but he does support my quirks and hobbies. Anyway, he sent me email giving me explicit permissions to post his DNA. (We don't live hear each other, so I can't just go over and help him join.) Would be a shame to limit discovery based on convoluted regulations. IMHO.
