social networking genealogy peeve

Someone on Ancestry.com who has some relatives in common with me keeps uploading little images of national flags and attaching them to ancient relatives from before the time of photography. Like, we have no photo of this person, so here is a flag of his country. Too nationalistic for my tastes (oh, Happy 4th! and no, these are not American ancestors, so not really a 4th of July activity).

But because we have these relatives in common, every time one of these flags is uploaded I get a notice that there is NEW INFORMATION! But there’s not new information; there’s a national flag .gif. *eyeroll*

Maybe this is the ancestry.com equivalent of the person who tweets too much?
