The more I think about what happened with the LAWeekly, the more I wonder why this incident occurred in the first place. Do some members of the public feel that researching one's family history is some sort of joke and that it is less than a worthy and noble effort? I don't think so. Viewer response to two seasons of "Who Do You Think You Are" has surely proven otherwise. What I do know is the LA Weekly now knows first-hand the geneablogging community believes genealogy is a subject that deserves respect.
