It said not to add real life examples in the article, but I can cite a real life issue with this.

Genealogy. People covering family history have to tiptoe a line with this some people view family history as a place to smile and think happy things about those who are gone, who get REALLY grumpy when they see the family sheets mentioning "depressing" things that happen in real families like genetic diseases, mental problems, suicide, alcohol abuse, etc. These are "bad things" to bring up, but the descendants ought to know what genetic baggage they may encounter - knowledge that can save a life.

You see, this one bothers me a lot. There are people who do not deserve respect after death because of their actions in life. I won't name names because of certain laws, but to be fair, why would we even deserve these people a fair say?

Perharps it has something to do with the fact they cannot defend themselves anymore after they die, or perharps they are following the Golden rule, "do to others what you would have them do to you."

Maybe they view that once dead, the person achieved a certain level of redemption.
