Ron,

That is a real good question.  Blogs are considered intellectual property. and I know there are legal guidelines that I read about a while ago.  I am looking forward to someone answering this.  A

Clint passed away 6 months or so ago and his AR blog is still available, so i don't think there is any standard procedure in place.

I was wondering if the policy had changed but as far as I know it stays up unless requested otherwise for a legal family member.

Ron Marshall to best of my knowledge, there is no such policy for them, as yet.

Oh Gee, I think their profile should stay there for a respectable amount of time and I don't know how long that is, but then I think they should be removed.  They would skew the numbers.  Well, the numbers are no where correct anyway, but you know what I mean.  There are at least 60 members just in my county that never have done anything, many are out of business, but AR would loose advertising dollars, IMHO, if they removed them because their "numbers" would drop like a rock!

I do not think they have a policy in place. With all the inactive accounts we have no way of knowing who is still with us and who is not.

I think things will evolve in social media and will on this topic.

I believe the default is that it stays up unless the family requests it be taken down and/or outlined in will.

A while back here, 2 members died around the same time.  One wanted his content there and his family wrote the last blog. The other family requested that all of her content be taken down.

I believe this was addressed in an earlier question and staff responded.  Typically the blog will be left up unless family members ask that it be removed.  I believe that commenting on it will be disabled.
