Watching the Watchers on the FamilySearch Family Tree

We knew it was coming! If you now try to edit anything in the Family Tree you are told how many people are watching the person you are editing. Here is a screenshot of the new warning:

Do you think this might be a deterrent to making weird or inaccurate changes? I do. The idea here is to get as many responsible people as possible to watch any one subject to arbitrary or unwarranted changes. Get busy. Organize your families, relatives and even friends. Watch everyone you think needs watching. Let those who would make unreasonable changes that there are those of us out here who will see exactly what they are doing and take action. Good move FamilySearch!!!
