My own methodology is to limit the individuals to deceased individuals, and
I don't allow download of the GEDCOM. I suppress all notes and email
addresses of contributors. I doubt that many will object to what have
posted and when I get an objection I make changes to my posting file.

I learned the lesson the hard way. I sent a cousin my gedcom file for his
own use and later found it on ancestry.com and the LDS Family Search.
He would not remove it and when I contacted both sources I was told the only
person that could remove it was the person who submitted it.
He changed his server so the contact shown was no longer valid.
Do not send anything, repeat anything, unless you remove all notes and then
send only the information on that persons family and limit the number of
Since then I have had several relatives very upset and some will not even
talk to me as I gathered the information with the understanding it would not
be put on the public domain unless they approved.
