As I write this, How (and if) to include name change for transgender person in genealogy? has two close votes, with the reason given being that the answers are likely to be "opinion-based".
Under that option, the advice says:
Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.
I think an exception needs to be made about seemingly "opinion-based" questions when the question involves the standards, especially the ethical standards, of the genealogical community. This is a question where we can point to specific expertise and references in our answers. This particular question may attract a lot of "well I think" blah blah answers, but if we get low-quality answers of that kind, with no references to published community standards, we can protect the question to prevent chatter and noise.
I respect the community members who voted to close the question. In this case, however, it seems clear that the opinion that really counts is the living person whose information will be included or withheld in the work of genealogy. I think it's important to have a canonical answer for questions like these which we can point to in the future, and I've done my best to make one, using references and pointers to specific expertise.
I welcome suggestions that community members can use when editing questions to make them less likely to attract "well I think this" answers.
